On ebay i have noticed that a few bottles have the word 'sammeldose' preceding whatever is being sold. i've tried to find out what it means, but had no luck, i think it means empty, which perhaps explains why these itmes bids are really low and wy not many people are bidding on them.

I just don't want to make a stupid mistake and buy an empty bottle

Thanks, Rob

I think it means the box or carton, not that the bottle is empty. They could be auctions for the box alone!

It's german for 'collecting box' - but I'm not sure if this means it is a collectable box or a box for putting collectable things in... :?

If it's on EvilBay then it's probably just the box, and if your are really unlucky just any old box.

Matt you are right. Sammeldose means, that the Box self is collectable. This means an improvement of a package of something. If this related to Whisky bottle and you can't see a bottle or it is meaning that their is no bottle, that you getting the box only.
A good examples are the old boxes from Glenfiddich with the diffrent scenes on it. They are mostlike offered as Sammeldose. Okay?

If you having a Ebay Number for what your are looking, then send me an PN or email, I can tell you what the offer is and what you get.

As people have said, "Sammel" means collect and "Dose" means tin.

Is this being used with something like a Whisky tin / tube?

Hi WB,
I see lots of those, I'm sure they are relying on many people not realising what they are buying.
Like some who also try to make it very difficult to see that they are selling miniatures and not 70cl bottles.

MT,

yeah there are quite a few on ebay, mainly bruichladdich, saw the prices as being stupidly low and thought i'd be sensible and see if i was missing anything. Indeed my suspicions wer correct, know i should have studies german at school and not spanish!!

Hi Rob - me too!

I studied French for 8 years (O-Level & A-Level), but had a choice of another, so I looked around at how many people / countries spoke Spanish, against how many German. Easy choice - I added O-Level Spanish.


Then eventually I move to Germany!!!
Oh well, 8 years here means I can hack my way through day-to-day living in a mixture of English, German and Gerglish.

yeah we had the garbage, that most of the world's population speak spanish which they do, never once used it. those that did german seemed to have a better time.

Just thought I would 'pop in' on this...
IMO if you are looking to study a different language...the choice should be between any one of the Asian languages - Why? Due to the fact that the majority of Europeans have their language based on latin of some description and so the translation from most various European languages to English is fairly easy to pick-up...when your reading it all the time too :?
There are obviously variously large differences in the language throughout Europe and likewise parts of the UK but in a sense it is all similar....

Ever tried listening in on a conversation between 2 Chinese people??

Or another language to consider is Jiberish :lol:
Spoken much throughout Pubs and such like establishments :lol: :lol:
