Basic Lesson No 6

The German Word: „sind“
– Fruits and Colors –

Today we cover the German word „sind“ but also some fruits.

Do you remember Basic Lesson No 4?

We covered the word: ist and we used it with singular nouns (for example: Eine Erdbeere ist rot). When we use plural nouns we usually use the word: sind (are).

For example: Erdbeeren sind rot (because we have more than one Strawberry).

The verb: sein (to be)

ich bin (I am)
du bist (you are)
er, sie, es ist (he, she, it is)
wir sind (we are)
ihr seid (you are)
sie sind (they are)

Erdbeeren sind rot.
Strawberries are red. 

Sie sind rot.
They are red.

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!

How To Learn With Part B

Question and Answer Part

This technique is very effective to save new information (the words, pronunciation, structure etc.) in your brain. Don't be afraid of part B. I use the same words as in part A.

  1. Read and listen a few times to the question and answers.
  2. Answer the questions in the pauses (you may look also at the answers).
  3. After a few times don't look at the answers anymore.
  4. Make sure that you imitate the pronunciation of the speaker.
  5. Repeat the lesson until you can answer the questions easily.
  6. Sign up to my e-mail course and learn how to use the storytelling method (TPRS method) in order to learn to speak German fluently.
