Schluss mit den Faxen! 📠

... or rather "Schluss mit dem Faxen!"

Languageschool students: Can you spot the subtle difference between the use of the Dative and Accusative??? *nerdface*

No? Let me explain then (*teacher mode*): "Schluss mit den Faxen!" is something your parents might yell at you, when they have enough of your shenenigans while "Schluss mit dem Faxen" is what might have been the headlines to the fact that the Bundestag (German Federal Parliament) has decided to end using fax machines in their house. 

It was the so-called "Ältestenrat" (the council of the wise old sages) who decided that it wouldn't need this outdated form of communication anymore. Well, actually, the very agile and modern-sounding "Kommission für den Einsatz neuer Informations- und Kommunikationstechniken und -medien" recommended not to add this function, and an actual extra line, to the new set of phones that will be installed in the parliament these days. So, really, it is being out-phased rather than that it being an active decision, but still, you gotta start somewhere!

So, remember: by 2024, no more faxes to the Bundestag! We don't take faxes either, but you can always contact us at languageschool@dankhaus.com and kinderschule@dankhaus.com. See you there!
