Abstract

German is famous for having long words. Luckily they can usually be disentangled quite easily, and make good sense once they are broken down into their various components. Here is just one example from the conversations in this unit: Käsesahnetorte = Käse (cheese).+ Sahne (cream) + Torte (gateau or flan). Once you have recognized the words that make up the long word, it will also be much easier to pronounce. Try this one: Sonnenblumenbrot. It consists of Sonne (sun) + Blume (flower) + Brot (bread).
