Social Media Campaign "#GermanInMyLanguage": Vote for your favorite word

In July we introduced the Social Media campaign “#GermanInMyLanguage”. Germany alumni from all over the world shared their favorite words of German descent, found in their language. We would like to present you here eight suggestions* we have selected. But of course we say thank you to all of those who posted a word/words in their social media profiles. Check our suggestions below and vote for your favorite word until October 3rd!

We are giving away the following prizes to the participants with the three most-voted words:

  1. Online German course from the Goethe-Institut
  2. 1-year premium subscription to Duden's new online spell checker (Duden Mentor)
  3. Book "Deutsch für alle" by the Iraq-born German author Abbas Khider

*Disclaimer: The selection of words is based on our terms of participation. Since these are proposals from Germany alumni from all over the world, we make no claim to complete accuracy. Some words were suggested by different people. In these cases we decided based on the principle "first come, first served" and if the sugessted word had met the required criteria.
