a phrase a day, holds the brainwaves in sway

It’s one of those days that you’re totally lazy and the thoughts are hibernating in their winter-sleep. Today for me is one of those days but I thought, the best way to motivate myself is to learn maybe just one german phrase and keep that in my head. At least I have learnt something today. My new idiom today is “jemanden über Ohrs hauen”. This means to take someone for a ride. Example: Versuchst du nicht mich übers Ohr zu hauen.

One phrase follows to the next. I wanted to know what how to say spanking clean or spick and span in german and here’s what my other half said. “Blitzblank”. I love that! Blitzblank!:-)


About germanforrunway

learning german is a love and hate learning journey. The beginning is difficult and it gets maybe tougher but definitely more lyrical as I discover the colloquial language or the slangs and in german 'Umgangssprache'. german for runways is a collection of slangs that I have learnt from the germans around me and my wonderful friend, Kirsten, is the mastermind behind the blogname. german for runways is the direct and awfully wrong translation for german for advanced level.
