In a horrible castle (not too far away from your home) there lived a horrible Duke with his horrible wife and their horrible servants. One morning the Duke was dead –murdered by one of the other horrible people living in the castle.

When the residents of the castle were interviewed by the police, every person gave two correct answers and told one lie. This is what they said:

The Duchess: a) I didn’t kill the Duke. b) The gardener killed my husband. c) I’m not guilty.

The Cook: a) It wasn’t me. b) I have been working here for 27 years. c) The butler knows who’s done it.

The Butler: a) I am not the murderer. b) The chambermaid is my witness; we were playing cards in the kitchen last night. c) The Duke was killed by the cook.

The Chambermaid: a) I didn’t do it. b) I wasn’t even here last night. c) The gardener did it.

The Gardener: a) The Duchess is lying when she says that I did it. b) I am innocent. c) The butler is the murderer.

Have fun! ;-)

Yes of course. ...Everyone gives two right answers. And one answer is wrong. But which?

For example: The duchess says twice that she is "innocent". That has to be right. So that "The gardener killed my husband" is wrong. ...and so on

Hi Juljan, ja, die Benachrichtigungsglocke fehlt einfach. : )
Aber ist doch gut, wenn du es schon gelesen hast. Genau das ist ja der Sinn und Zweck des Ganzen. Du wirst animiert einen englischen Text zu lesen und hast auch noch Spaß dabei. ...Hoffe ich zumindest.

Der Text ist auch nicht so schwer, denke ich. Im Grunde geht es nur darum, dass der Herzog ermordet wurde und die Polizei seine Frau sowie die Angestellten dazu befragt. Und anhand der 3 Antworten, von denen 2 jeweils stimmen, sollst du dann herausfinden, wer der Mörder ist.
