Colloquial German Gem – “Alles gut”

In this episode:

"Alles gut." is a really common expression in colloquial German. Today, we'll explore all the contexts in which we can use it - with plenty of examples.

alles-gut-imageHello everyone,

and welcome to our German word of the day. And this time, it’s actually a phrase of the day, because I want to tell you about one particular phrase that is REALLY common in daily life and that you absolutely should start including because it’ll make you sound much more authentic.

The phrase is… drumroll…

Alles gut

Now you’re like “What? That’s like All Good. Doesn’t seem particularly special to me.”
But my observation is that the phrase has gotten pretty damn trendy recently.
It has two usages and while one has been pretty standard for a while, I noticed that the second usage really caught on recently. Like… I hear it from all different kinds of people – teens, retired people, managers, models, TV hosts.

And then, last night, when the neighbors’s cat that hangs out in our yard a lot used it as I came by, I realized:   it is time to cut back on the dru… uh…
I mean, it’s time to tell you about the phrase.  So you can impress your friends with how much you sound like a native speaker. And you can use it every day.
So are you ready to take a look? Perfect.
