Anyone curious how my German class is going?
Teacher: Write a recipe in the passive and active and then exchange it with the table next to you. Make sure you look up any words you don't know.
Me: I love writing about food! hmm..I think I will write about crepes. They can be sweet or savory! How versatile!
Student 1 & 2 hands me their recipe
Me: Hmm...a recipe for Gnocchi. I don't know this word - Grieß (look at the 6th definition)
I accidentally look up Greis instead! (the 2nd definition is what I found)
Me to student 1 & 2: Are you sure you need old man in your recipe? I don't think that would taste very good!
Student 1 & 2 look confused
(Natürlich, this was all in German)
