Friends International English Conversation Group

Archive for August 2010

During our last meeting of Berlin Friends Club on Tuesday, we came up on some words which we couldn´t find out on the spot. One of them was:

  • Knochendichtemessung (what a word!) Bone density, according to LEO dictionary, in special professional use also bone mineral density, is the right word for Knochendichte. So, Knochendichtemessung would be bone density examination, I would suppose.
  • We also diskussed the word for Urkunde in the context of sports. I didn´t find any special term, neither in LEO nor in the Oxford German-English dictionary. I presume it should be certificate.

If you would like to discuss more of these complicated words, why not join us next Tuesday at Asia Snack in Kochstr.? We not only talk about English-German words, but all sorts of topics that just come up.

See you then!

Even though it is holiday time in Berlin, FRIENDS are meeting in Berlin. If you have a day off, it is a good reason for meeting. And if you have to work or are busy during the day, meeting with FRIENDS is a good chance to chill and talk. So why don´t you make it a point and join us tonight or next Tue? All of us will give you a warm and cordial welcome.

See you then!
