Lipbeards R Us

German is not super easy to learn, but there are some parts of it that make so much sense.

For example, the word for mustache is literally "lip beard" -- Lippenbart. That's awesome and totally descriptive.

Our German teacher told us that in English, we will explore Greek or Latin to help form a new word; in German, speakers just go back to German to form new words.
