Difference between Essen and Fressen?
I'm confused , how do you use them?
Usually you use "fressen" for animals and "essen" for people. But it's possible to say "essen" when referring to a pet or if you want to emphasize your love or respect for an animal. (Though there are people who believe you should never use "essen" for animals.) Using "fressen" to describe a person eating is considered insulting.
