German highlights

leave a comment »

In my German class, we have to use highlighters to mark the different nouns in our workbooks. Blue (blau) for masculine, pink (rosarot) for feminine, green (grün) for neutral and yellow (gelb) for plural. There is so much new to learn, but the familiarity of gender stereotyping is cold comfort.

And, although neons are making a fashionable comeback this season, I’m just not a highlighter kinda gal. Conceptually, I’m a fountain-pen princess. Realistically, I’m the chick scrawling last-minute notes with a chewed-down ball-point. Of course, “QWERTY” rules, although in this part of the world, make that “QWERTZ”.
