Today in Dialog in Deutsch we were playing the “pick the odd man out” game with German vocabulary. We started with:
Eisen Kupfer Kohle Messing
“Iron” “copper” “coal” “brass”
The answer here is Kohle as it is not a metal. We went through a few more that relied on similarly subtle distinctions, the flower among the trees and the spice among the herbs, etc. Then we moved onto this set:
Lesebrille Sonnenbrille Fernbrille Klobrille
“reading glasses” “sun glasses” “distance glasses” “toilet seat”
Clearly the book’s authors had a sense of fun as they were composing this exercise!
