#GermanLanguageLessons

One thing that irritates me in english is the use of the word "hat". In german "Hut" 👒 is something completely different than "Mütze"🎅 or "Kappe"👮.

In english it's always "hat"... and I keep thinking about a top hat 🎩.

(But to be fair: I am very emotional about the handknitted "Mützen" I get from my grandma.)

@Julia_Schmeer Das begegnet einem ja immer wieder. :D Feiertage, Ferien und Urlaub sind alles holidays und, na ja, alles ist economics. ;)

@esureL @Julia_Schmeer im Gegenzug sind im Deutschen "pies" schwierig

apple pie
cherry pie
steak&kidney pie????

@theoutrider Kirschkuchen
Apfelkuchen

We just don't have hearty/salty pies... 😊
Except Zwiebelkuchen, Salzkuchen or the ones we borrow like "Quiche" or english pies...

@Julia_Schmeer @esureL jo, ich verwundere hier regelmäßig Leute, wenn ich erkläre, dass "savoury pies" der deutschen Küche fast vollkommen fremd sind
