    Wie sagt man auf Deutsch:

    "I hope that we can stay in contact, and continue to write to each other."

    My guess for the first clause: Ich hoffe, wir koennen in Kontakt bleiben.

    Completely lost on the second

    "Embarrassed" würde ich als "verlegen" übersetzen. "Wort" ist aber ein Neutrum, in Deinem Satz muss es "...dieses englische Wort" heißen.
    "Lever dot as slav."

    Hesse, you can also use "peinlich" for embarrassed.

    Be careful:

    You must say "Er / sie / es / war ihm peinlich." If you say "Er war peinlich", it means he embarrassed somebody else, which alters the meaning completely.

    Can you say "Ich bin peinlich"?

    Can you say "Ich bin peinlich"?
    Yes, but as Germaid pointed out, that would mean "I'm embarassing", not "I'm embarassed".

    To express the latter, you could say "Ich bin peinlich berührt".
    "Lever dot as slav."
