Hi Sarah,


That would be "Ich bin Sanitäter" or in your case I guess:

"Ich bin Sanitäterin."

If you are mostly working out of an ambulance car, you can be more

specific: Rettungssanitäterin or Notfallsanitäterin.

Trying to pronounce these words will keep you busy for a while.😉


Thank you.


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Hi John,


Thank you for your honest reply and I will forward

your comment to our team.

The only reason I can think of why they would include

a lion tamer, for instance, is trying to make the lesson a bit

"funnier"? 😉


If you have any further questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Really disappointed with the choices for this list - I hope you update it with some of the helpful suggestions from Alan - ie "police officer, nurse, doctor as well as physiotherapist in case of need for treatment.


Other ones that spring to mind: teacher, programmer, fireman, writer, artist, driver"


I'd add builder, electrician
