I am studying German in Austria, Graz since few months, currently attending a A2/B1 course. Often our teachers tries to teach us some funny or commos expressions..things you would just use in spoken language and probably never write in any essay or so. The problem is that so often when I ask my friend (he is from Austria) if he would use these same expressions he says they sound old or ridiculous xD So I am wondering if any of you would ever use these expressions:
"Angsthase" and "Das ist ein Märchen".
What do you think? Are they actually used by people or not?
