Not even considering the funny translation, one might ask why Sueddeutsche chose 7 very simple questions from the German test and 20 not all that trivial questions from the British test.
Do you know whether the British test has been published on the internet?
Googling ‘Life in the UK’ will produce more examples on various sites, but I think one has to buy the book, which I haven’t. I found one question relating to Christmas pudding (we never eat Christmas pudding after turkey with all the trimmings – fruit salad is all I can manage).
I found the German questions easier too! But I don’t even know how standardized the questions are in the UK. BBC News had an article on the topic recently, and I assume the SZ just built on that, what with the German questions being in the news.
As far as I know (and remember), the question book has to be purchased from HMSO, or a local library might have it. I don’t think it’s available online. More information here: http://www.lifeintheuktest.gov.uk/
Thanks to both of you for putting me on the right track. I wasn’t sure where to look. Now I do.
