German isn’t always an easy language to learn, but its worth it when you find that word that you just love to use in conversation whenever possible! Here are a few of our students’ favorite German words:

Elizabeth: der Tintenfisch –octupus/squid/calamari

Noa: das Kopierpapier — copy paper

Reed: der Ohrwurm — catchy song (literally translates as “ear worm”!)

Jackie: der Hai — shark

Jessie: der Zwetschgendatschi — plum cake

*BONUS WORD: schmeckerlich — tasty (WARNING: this isn’t a real German word, but Jose created it and we use it with shocking frequency)
