I, you, he, she, it in German 

Basic Lesson No 5

Personal Pronouns: ich du er sie es

ich, du, er, sie, es, wir, ihr, sie

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 this link:

>>> We, you, they in German

And here you find more audio examples with all personal pronouns:
>>> All Personal Pronouns

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 make 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.

Tip: Always try to imagine the situations in your mind, it will help you to remember the words!
