Is a Freund really a friend? Is blau really blue? Take our quiz to see how well you know your German-English cognates from your false friends.

Learning a new language is tricky, and it's made even trickier by false friends: words which look like they should be cognates but actually mean something totally different. Fortunately Freund and blau are both cognates of friend and blue respectively. But there are many German words which could lead you astray.
