Written By: Emanuel Updated: July 2, 2021

lohn-sich-lohnen-meaningHello everyone,

and welcome to our German Word of the Day. This time we’ll have a look at the meaning of

der Lohn


A great word to know, though we’ll also talk about something really incredibly boring. But we’ll also look at the meaning of the verb lohnen, and that’s totally worth it. Like… for real. Like… literally.

Lohn sounds a lot like the English word loan and the main use of both of them is money that you get. But that’s just a coincidence because the two are not related. And Lohn is muuuuuuch cooler because… you don’t have to pay it back.
