Useful German Expressions You Won’t Find In A Textbook

You will hardly find expressions of the colloquial language (‘Umgangsspache’) in a textbook. They can be characterized by different words unknown in ‘Hochdeutsch’ (standard German), the same words with a different meaning, or the grammar not always being used in a grammatical way. Although sometimes they might sound harsh, they often get straight to the heart of the matter at hand. So, let's learn some common German expressions used in everyday conversation.

When I was learning Spanish, I had the same experience that it is much easier to understand the news than to understand TV shows or everyday speech.  I would turn on the news in Univision or Telemundo and I could understand almost all of it.  Then I would switch to a telenovela and understand almost nothing.
