Year 8 German
Year 8 have been learning about long German words or ‘compound nouns’ after noticing a pattern with the words “Ferienwohnung” and “Ferienhaus” and working out the meaning of these independently. They looked at some of the longest words in German and had a go at pronouncing these delightfully German compound nouns!
Das Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabensübertragungsgesetz – the law of delegation of monitoring of beef labelling (ZAC)
Die Rechtsschutzversicherungsgesellschaften – Insurance companies providing legal protection (TEGAN)
Die Freundschaftbezeugungen – demonstrations of friendship (ELLA)
Der Bezirksschornsteinfegermeister – head chimney sweep (NEVE)
