You’re working with a group of people and just can’t remember the name of an object in the training room. In German you would probably call it the ‘Dingsbums’. And in English? We like the words ‘thingamajig’ and ‘whatchamacallit’. But if you’re lucky, a participant might even know the right name for it! 😉
Read Deutsche Welle’s short article on ‘Dingsbums‘. We can highly recommend their Word of the Week.
