If you listen to young children, they will say the darndest things.
Today my 5 year old walked up to me and asked what a specific word meant in German.
I questioned his request asking “You mean what does it mean in English?”
And he corrected me “No, what does it mean in German?”
We looked the word up on Google, and yep, it was a German word, so I told him the definition.
He cheerily thanked me, happy with the answer, and continued with his play.
(Note: We don’t speak German in my household, have no German relatives or friends, my son has never been overseas, and has had no contact with the German language in the last 5 years).
