What's up with Germans talking about the yellow from the egg and leaving the church in the village? And what does it mean when Americans talk about cakes that you can't have and eat, too? Or beating dead horses?! Today's episode is all about German and American idioms, slang, and other colloquialisms. What do you think, how many German idioms does Josh know and how familiar is Feli with American colloquialisms? We had a lot of fun guessing the meaning of some of these sayings and also learned a lot about their backgrounds!
