How to say “I’ll let you know” – Luxembourgish useful phrases B1

In this lesson I want to talk about some very useful Luxembourgish expressions – Bescheed soen & Bescheed wëssen –  which are SUPER common and you’ll definitely hear them in daily life a lot.

Let’s start with

Bescheed soen – to let someone know

Beipsiller – examples

1 Let’s say that you are invited to a party and your friend is asking you

➤Kënns du op meng Party? – Are you coming to my party?

and if you haven’t made up your mind yet, then your answer could be:

Ech soen dir muer Bescheed. – I’ll let you (informal) know tomorrow.

2 Let’s say that a meeting was rescheduled and Daniel didn’t know. He wasn’t told. And Anna asks:

➤Firwat ass den Daniel net an d’Reunioun komm? – Why didn’t Daniel come to the meeting?

And Marc answers:

➢Et huet keen him Bescheed gesot. – No one told him.

⇒Bescheed soen is used with the dative case. So you have to say:

Ech soen dir Bescheed. – I will let you (informal) know.

Ech soen Iech Bescheed. – I’ll let you (formal) know.

Hie seet mir Bescheed.  – He will let me know.

3 Let’s say that you had a really important job interview and you partner is asking you

➤ An? Wéi war et? – So? How was it?

Your answer could be

➢Ganz gutt. Si soe mir d’nächst Woch Bescheed. – Pretty well. They’ll let me know next week.

And here two useful phrases:

Firwat hues du mir net Bescheed gesot? – Why didn’t you let me know?

Merci fir d’Bescheedsoen. – Thanks for letting me/us know.

 

Bescheed wëssen – to know what’s going on

Bescheed wëssen is used to express that you know / are aware about a specific situation, that you are informed about a situation someone is talking about:

Du brauchs mir näischt ze soen, ech weess scho Bescheed. – You don’t need to say anything, I know already (I’m in the loop).

Let’s imagine a family situation:

➤ Wat ass dann hei lass? – What’s going on here?

➢ Fro däi Jong. Hie weess Bescheed. – Ask your son. He knows what happened.

Bescheed wëssen is often used with the preposition iwwer:

Bescheed wëssen iwwer to know about

Beipsiller – examples

Ech weess iwwer den Accident Bescheed. – I know about the accident.

Mir wëssen iwwer de Problem Bescheed. – We know about the problem.

Deng Mamm weess ëmmer iwwer alles  Bescheed. – Your mum always knows about everything.

⇒You can also replace iwwer and the object by ⇒ d(o)riwwer (about it)

Ech weess driwwer Bescheed. – I know about it.

Let’s practice

Try to translate the following sentences into Luxembourgish:

  1. His parents are well informed.
