Today we also want to cover the German word: sind.

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.
