The Good, the (not) Bad, and the Ugly German words - Part 1

When people decide to learn German, they often feel quite apprehensive about learning all those new words, phrases and grammar. If you feel the same, then let me show you some interesting German words.I am talking about the good, the not bad, and the ugly German words.

Part 1 – the Good:
