@Em1: The OP also cited the infinitive abfahren (correctly written unseparated) as an example for a verb that does have a movable prefix.

Where did you learn that those verbs aren’t separated? That’s plain wrong, they behave exactly the same as abfahren: Er geht weg. Er steigt um.

Why do you think the one or the other might be right? In what way would it help you if I said that 1) is almost right, but contains one mistake?

comment What does “Backpfeifengesicht” mean and is there a cognate in English?
@Takkat: Because the OP would explain it to them, as I said above (“describing the meaning for their users”). It’s possible, as Iris suspects, that the OP actually wants to know what the word means; but as the question currently is, it clearly asks for a translation. And I, for one, don’t feel able to find an English equivalent that matches the tone.

The community here are not experts for finding English expressions. You should instead ask on ELU.SE (English Language & Usage), describing the meaning for their users.

@Gerhard: If that is the question (which I’m not sure of, that’s why this was closed as unclear), it’s out of scope here. There is Language Learning SE, though.

@Gerhard: So what is the answer, in your opinion? “No, nobody can help you with this”?

comment For how many years do Germans study English at school?
I think the approach is flawed. Children and people learning their first foreign language take much longer to learn a language; and of course it depends on the time you put into learning each week, too.

comment For how many years do Germans study English at school?
I’m voting to close this question as off-topic because it is about education systems, not about the German language.

I did; that’s why I said misleading, not wrong.
