"Schnapsidee" & Co., "special German" words have their charm, but are often difficult to explain!
At the Goethe-Institut Irland we have made a selection of these words accessible to non-native speakers - and had lots of fun! The result was, and is, published in a popular series on our social media channels, Facebook and Twitter. The collection is now compiled here.
Happy reading!
