I don't know if there is one of these already (if so, I haven't gotten to it, and sorry for posting this) but I would like to learn religious words in different languages. I myself am an atheist, but I would still like to know things like "God", "Lord", "Bible", "Religious", "Christian", "Muslim", "Hindu", etc.

Since you are learning german and that's my native language, here are the german translations for the words you requested:

God - (Der) Gott

Lord - (Der) Herr

Bible - Die Bibel

Religious - religiös

Christian - christlich, Der Christ (male person), Die Christin (female person)

Muslim - muslimisch/moslemisch, Der Muslim / Der Moslem (male person), Die Muslimin / Die Muslima (female person)

Hindu - Der Hindu

German also has a Religion/Spirituality skill fairly far down the tree which teachers several of those words. (Though not all of them - no "Lord" or "Bible", from what I remember.)

-_- Gee. Helpful. The point of this post is that I want more than those words. Those are just examples of words I would like to know.

Of course not. However I would like to know more than just the 7 or so religious words I posted for, again, examples. There is no special grammar associated with animals or food or clothing, yet there are lessons for that.

I think most trees have a lesson on some of this towards the end. To supplement it you can do Immersion and look for things with those keywords probably.

The expanded German tree now has separate skills for Spirituality and Religion and covers most of what you mention above.

"Heer" is "Lord" in Dutch [figured that out by looking at the Dutch translation of the Quran]

That's funny! The german word for 'Lord' is 'Herr'. There also is a german word 'Heer' but it means 'army'
