    How can I translate this sentence to German?
    Wie kann ich diesen Satz auf Deutsch sagen?

    "I make a promise to myself"

    My try: "Ich gebe mir selbst einen Versprechen" / "Ich verspreche mir selbst"


    Vielen Dank!!

    The first is correct. The second one only if you add the thing you promise, e.g. "Ich verspreche es mir selbst", "Ich verspreche mir mit Rauchen aufzuhören."

    Yes, the first one is almost correct.

    It should of course be: Ich gebe mir selbst ein Versprechen.

    Of course! I thought it would be: "der Versprechen"

    Thank you both for the correction and the other suggestions ;-))
