    You're right, I just overlooked it entirely. I'll amend that.

    That's actually what I meant, "Der Leherer spricht zu seinen Studenten, aber sie sind mude".

    I'd use als instead of warend, and it's spielt, not speilt.

    Ah yes. I thought though, als was used in combination with genauso, weniger and mehr. I remember weil in German is not the same as While in the US.

    Question. In all my previous excersizes, "keine" has seemed to be singular. It can be plural?

    Keine dieser Tiere sind Pferde.

    Hm...

    Yes kein can be plural, in which case it would be translated as "None" or "not any." Ein has no plural form though. Als is a weird word, I don't really know how to explain when it's used. "When I was a kid," would be "als ich ein Junge war," and in the one you posted I'd use it instead of warend, and when used like that als would mean "as" or "while."
