So, what is all about in German, when you have these long words?! Let me tell you….
In my opinion, it’s not that hard. Maybe if you have a little difficulty with languages or you find German hard then it might also be a bit heavy.
The point is very simple, in German, they just combine as many words as they want (yes, they can invent new long words) in order to make something make sense.
For example, I want to say « table lamp » I should say « Tischlampe » Tisch is Table and Lampe is lamp (here, you can even see the similarity of German to English) and the only thing is I should combine those words together to make it a German word with meaning 🙂
On this lesson Rudi, our teacher gave us a very extreme example of combined words. Take a look at this word:
Have any idea what does it mean?! Actually me niether.. haha I totally forgot. But it is actually one company’s name! Yes, yes, a real company’s name. Cool ha?!
haha.. and so it goes like this.
The only thing you should do is to find the single words, you already know, inside this long word to make it make sense to you 🙂
It’s not so hard it is really ok! You just need some practice. Everybody can learn German! and also can you!
So far I very much enjoy my classes in DeutschAkademie, every lesson makes me better in German which is so important when you live here.
