Tips to remember the German word “weit”:
– Create an association with the English word “wide,” as “weit” sounds like “wide” and can help you remember it deals with spatial dimensions, just as something that is “wide” has a broad extension.
– Use the phrase “Weit and wide,” where the similar sounds of “weit” and “wide” serve as a mnemonic.
– Imagine a “weightlifter” stretching his arms “weit” (far) apart while lifting weights to remember the meaning.

Explanations:
– “Weit” is an adjective in German which translates to “far” or “distant” in English. It refers to a considerable distance from a point of reference.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– “Fern” is another German word that also means “far.” However, “fern” is more often used to describe something that is really distant or remote, effectively far-far away.
– “Entfernt” is similar and means “removed” or “distant.”

Alternate meanings like slang:
– In colloquial German, “weit” can be used metaphorically. For example, saying “Du bist weit weg” can mean “You are far away” in terms of being mentally distant or daydreaming, not just physically distant.

Examples of sentences that use it:
– “Das Restaurant ist ziemlich weit weg von hier.” (The restaurant is quite far away from here.)
– “Wir sind weit gekommen.” (We have come far.)
– “Das Ziel ist noch weit entfernt.” (The goal is still far away.)
