7 Wurstsorten, Brotsorten

Activity 9

You might have already heard that Wurst (thinly sliced cold sausage and other meat cuts) are a popular food item in German-speaking countries. There are many different varieties (die Sorte; pl: die Sorten).

The man in the audio in Activity 8 refers to Wurstsorten (different types of cold meat) but you can apply this word to other food and drink such as Brotsorten (different types of bread, of which there are many in German speaking countries ), Obstsorten (types of fruit) or Weinsorten, Biersorten etc.
