This is a gorgeous summer´s day, a light wind and the sun is pouring down. A good chance for all expats, English-speaking Germans and Friends to meet tonight and talk about what we think is worth talking about. So why don´t you make an effort, as well and join us tonight at Asia Snack in Kochstr. in Berlin-Kreuzberg? See you then!

During our last meeting we came across some words wwere not quite sure about. Here is the solution.

– Amazing but the English word for the German “Schwermetall” is really “heavy metal”.

– We didn´t find a suitable word for German “krass” in the sense of “amazing”, but this was a bit too ordinary. What I found out from dict.cc is “far out”, and I think it suits best the colloquial meaning of the German word.

– The German word “Kitsch” is that unique that it is used in English, as well: “kitsch” and the adverb “kitschy”.

– You would exercise your climbing skills in the German “Hochseilgarten”. This is a “high rope course”, according to dict.cc, but leo does not give a meaning.

– “Räumliches Vorstellungsvermögen” in English would be “spacial sense”, according to LEO.

So you can see that there is always something to learn and talk about in Berlin Friends Club. Why don´t you join us on Tuesdays?
