In our last lesson on false friends, we discussed a few false cognates that begin with the letters C and D. Today, we're moving yet another step down the alphabet to learn about some falsche Freunde starting with E and F:

 

eventuell: maybe, possibly, perhaps
False English friend: eventually, finally, ultimately, at some later time (German: endlich, schließlich)

 

Ich rieche dran [daran], ob die wirklich auch nach 'ner [einer] Erdbeere riecht, und eventuell könnte ich noch oben schauen.

I smell it, [to see] if it also really smells like a strawberry, and maybe I could look on top.
