Personal Pronouns:  wir, ihr, sie

You already know that German verbs (in the basic form) have mostly an „en“ at the end. And you also know that the endings change according to the personal pronouns.

OK then let’s have a look and see how the endings change when we use the personal pronouns wir, ihr and sie.

How To Learn With Part A

  1. Read and listen a few times.
  2. Repeat after the speaker.
  3. Make sure that you imitate the pronunciation of the speaker.
  4. 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!

Basic German Lesson 1 and 2

Don’t be afraid of vampires or German!

Vampires and German have something in common. They are easy to handle if you know how. To fight vampires three things would help: garlic, a stake and a crucifix.
