posted in: News english | 0

We have now reached the fourth day of this year’s virtual multi language workshop of the European Youth Week. This is the part of our virtual 2021 European Youth Week intended for language lovers. Here you’ll find links to interesting and funny language websites that may surprise, excite, and delight you. Today things are going to be a bit more complicated. We already had a look at some sayings.

Many of the sayings that we have in common derive from the bible.The website is a very fascinating website in my opinion. Here you find various versions of the bible in many languages. For instance, more than 10 German version of the bible, 4 English versions and 1 Dutch version. Select “All translations” and mark the box of the versions you would like to be shown. Then just insert the word or phrase you would like to see translated. For instance, this link shows you the phrase “eye for an eye tooth for a tooth” in English, German and French:…/eye%20for%20an%20eye…

If you enter “camel” you will be shown a number of texts and of course also “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich person to enter the kingdom of God. ”Please feel free to contribute to today’s virtual workshop by commenting or adding other examples that you find interesting.

See you again tomorrow!
