Mobile

Okay, most people know this now, but I just wanted to remind you, just in case. The English word for ‘Handy’ is ‘mobile phone’ or ‘cell phone’. Mind you, a lot of English native speakers who have been living here in Germany for some time forget this! 😉

The English word ‘handy’ means ‘useful’ and ‘practical’ and has nothing to do with a phone!
