German 6 - Story time

Let's spice it up a little. German is the language of story telling. From now on, I will tell you a story, here and there interrupted by a little grammar lessson.

Die Geschichte des kleinen Mannes (The Story of the Little Man)

Der kleine Mann (the little man) has a double meaning in German:

  1. it can mean: the man is small of size
  2. it can also mean: the man is unimportant, neither rich nor famous, neither especially handsome or talented, just the little average man who is struggling his way through life
