    Can anyone suggest the best German translation for the following sentence:

    "I heard you speaking very good German."

    The best I can think of is: "ich habe auf dich beim sehr guten Sprechen auf Deutsch gehört."

    I am particulary intersting how one should translate "speaking" (or present participles) within a short sentence like this.

    I would appreciate any suggestions on how to make a nice sentence!

    Thanks in advance.

    I would translate "I heard you speaking very good German" as follows: "Ich habe gehört, wie du sehr gutes Deutsch gesprochen hast".

    "I heard you speak very good German": "Ich habe gehört, dass ​du sehr gutes Deutsch gesprochen hast".

    Or: Ich habe dich sehr gutes Deutsch sprechen hören.
