Ich komme aus den(?)

    Default Ich komme aus den(?)

    Well, this one stumped me. How would you refer to "the Philippines"? What article should be used? Only example I got from the book is "Ich komme aus den USA". Then should it be "den Philippinen" in the context of "Ich komme aus" as well? Like... "Ich komme aus den Philippinen, aus Manila", or "Ich komme aus Manila, in den Philippinen"?

    Also, is it necessary to start a new thread for each question, or should I just put all my questions into a main question thread dedicated to my own studies?

    Thanks!

    Hi,
    because Philippinen are islands I would rather say: Ich komme von den Philippinen, aus Manila ....
    But you can also say: Ich komme aus Manila, von den Philippinen. Actually I would prefer the first suggestion - sounds better ;-)
