Personal Pronouns – Part 1

This time we cover some personal pronouns ("ich", "du", "er" "sie" "es") and the corresponding endings of the verbs. And you learn how to formulate a question in German.

Logo Basic German



German verbs (in the basic form) have mostly an "en" at the end.
Like: to eat, to drink, to come, to read… => is in German: essen, trinken, kommen, lesen… The endings change according to the personal pronouns:


Example: spielen


  Click the play button and listen


=> ich, du, er, sie und es


  spiel -e   play
  Ich spiele.   I play. / I am playing.
  spiel -st   play
  Du spielst.   You play. / You are playing.
  spiel -t   plays
