word of the day (click here to listen)

to pick out / to choose

Ich suche aus. -> I am making a choice out of a presented quantity of possibilities.

Ich suche heraus.-> I am taking something out of... (for you). E.g. I want to give you something, I know more or less where it is (like a paper in my drawyer) and I have to go through the pile of other papers to get it out for you. It is not about choice it is about localizing somehting.
