WORDS AND PHRASES MY GERMAN EXCHANGE STUDENT TAUGHT ME

  1. Es ist schön, Sie kennen zu lernen.
    Which basically means it is nice to meet you, a phrase that I will be using when I meet her grandfather who, did I mention, does not speak a word of English? I am terrified.
  2. Geschwister
    So this just means siblings, but how cool is this word?!
  3. Besteck
    This means cutlery, one word I learned in an entire conversation about words for German kitchenware.
  4. Unterschenkel
    Means lower leg, I learned this word through a German chant about parts of the body (think: head, shoulders, knees, and toes but scary)
  5. Herumkutschieren
    Finally, my favorite word I've learned, it means "to drive around aimlessly" essentially, something that I do extremely often.
