“Fit and Miss”
and welcome to day two of the German Learning Advent Calendar. And instead of easing into it, we’ll jump right into the action and get busy with a quiz. One of my favorite quiz types, actually:
Find the Misfit
Here’s how it works:
I give you a few words and one of them doesn’t fit with the others. In older quizzes, I was pretty much exclusively aiming at some grammar aspects, like plural or how the ge-form looks or whether it is a subordinating conjunction or a coordinating conjunction.
Yeah… I know… sounds riveting!
But this time, it’s not as nerdy and I also put some in where you need to translate to see the difference, so you can practice your vocabulary also…ever so slightly :).
I’ll give a quick explanation for each solution, too, but it is definitely possible that there are other solutions and reasons that I didn’t notice.. It’s really hard creating one set of words that really only differs in ONE aspect.
Anyway, I really enjoyed making this, so viel Erfolg und viel Spaß!
Let me know in the comments how you did and if it was a nice level of difficulty.
Have an amazing day and I’ll see you tomorrow.
