**Tips to remember the German word:**
– Break the word down into its components: “Geld” means money, and “Automat” means machine. So literally, a “money machine” is easy to visualize and recall.
– Make associations with the word: You can picture yourself at an automated machine taking out cash – “Geld” from an “Automat”.
– Use mnemonic devices: Create a simple phrase like “Get Every Last Dime from the AUTOMATic teller” to remember “Geldautomat”.

**Explanations:**
– “Geldautomat” is a compound noun in German, which combines “Geld” (money) and “Automat” (machine).
– It’s a masculine noun (der Geldautomat), but in conversation, it’s often used with the neuter article (das is a common mistake), possibly because of the neutral endings of most machines (-at).

**Other words that mean the same thing:**
– “Bankautomat” (bank machine)
– “ATM” is also used as an English loanword in German, especially with younger people or in a more casual context.

**Alternate meanings like slang:**
While “Geldautomat” doesn’t have slang meanings, it’s often abbreviated colloquially:
– “Ich geh zum Automaten.” means “I’m going to the ATM.”
– In a very informal setting, someone could say “Ich muss noch zum Zauberer” jokingly referring to the ATM as a “wizard” because it dispenses money.

**Examples of sentences that use it:**
– “Ich muss noch Geld vom Geldautomat abheben bevor die Geschäfte schließen.” (I need to withdraw money from the ATM before the stores close.)
– “Am Wochenende ist der Geldautomat oft leer, weil so viele Leute Bargeld holen.” (The ATM is often empty on weekends because so many people take out cash.)
