Personal Pronouns Part 1
I, you, he, she, it in German 

Personal Pronouns: ich du er sie es

On this page you can practice with: ich, du, er, sie and es. If you want to practice with the personal pronouns: wir, ihr, sie (we, you, they) then follow the links at the end of this lesson.

I – you – he – she – it – in German

Today I want to cover some personal pronouns (ich, du, er, sie, es) and the corresponding endings of the verbs.

You will also learn how to ask a question in German.

Did you know that German verbs (in the basic form) have mostly an „en“ at the end? For example: to eat, to drink, to come, to read… => in German: essen, trinken, kommen, lesen

The endings change according to the personal pronouns. Let’s look at the word spielen and the personal pronouns ich, du, er, sie, es.

How To Learn With Part A

  1. Have a look at the picture.
  2. Read and listen a few times.
  3. Repeat after the speaker.
  4. Make sure that you imitate the pronunciation of the speaker.
  5. After a few repetitions go on to part B (farther below).
Tip: Always try to imagine the situations in your mind, it will help you to remember the words!
