German A1 Grammar: Sich fortbewegen
To move

In German, it is very important to know how exactly you are moving forward. "I'm going to Italy next month" but "how exactly are you going there?" is what a true German would ask.
German sometimes is all about accuracy!
1. If you are going by foot, use:
Ich gehe nach Italien.
2. If you are going by car, bus, bike or train, use:
Ich fahre nach Italien.
3. If you are flying, then just say so!
Ich fliege nach Italien.
4. Last and less likely, but you might also go jogging to your holiday destination:
Ich laufe nach Italien.
5. And if you are extremely athletic and want to sprint, you can also say:
Ich renne nach Italien.
Wow, Germans are always so precise...
