Word of the Day -“schweben”

Hello everyone,

and welcome to our German Word of the Day. And today, we’ll take a short and sweet look at the word



Schweben is the German word for to hover, and I know that most of you now think “Mehhhhhh.”
And yes, I admit, it’s not the most useful or exciting word ever. And not many interesting relatives either. But there are a few nice colloquialisms here. And hey… every good TV show has these kind of “slow” episodes where not much happens, right? RIGHT?
