    Rather than using the formal 'would like' (moechten), use the formal 'want' (wollen).

    Was willst du tun? (VOSS-VILLST-DU-TOON): What do you want to do?

    Willst du etwas essen? (VILLST-DU-ET-VAHSS-ESSEN): Do you want something to eat?

    Hast du Hunger? (HAHSST-DU-HUNGER): Are you hungry?(literally, 'Do you have hunger?')

    Hast du Durst? (HAHSST-DU-DURST): Are you thirsty? (literally, 'Do you have thirst?')

    Sollen wir einen Spaziergang mit den Hunden machen? (SOLLEN-VEER-EYE-NEN-SCHPATZ-EER-GANG-MIT-

    DEN-HOON-DEN-MAHKEN): Should we take a walk with the dogs?

    The last one's kind of tricky, I know. Good luck with your German exchange student and have fun!
