Note:
*dochThis is a filler word.

We German love these little words.

They usually cannot be translated because they have no special meaning. We just use those words to give more expression to a situation or to emphasize something.

So, don’t worry too much about them.

By the way, if you practice with all of my lessons and stories, you will encounter them often and develop a natural feeling for them and their meaning.

Personal Pronouns and Verb Endings
There are exceptions but most verbs have the following structure – so it is good to know this:

ich + verb ending –e
du + verb ending –st
er + verb ending –t
sie + verb ending –t
es + verb ending –t
wir + verb ending –en
ihr + verb ending –t
sie + verb ending –en

Don't stop now - repeat this part again!

Repeat this lesson until you can easily answer the questions.

s
sie/Sie (confusing German word)

What do the words you, they and she mean in German?

This question is often asked and when I answer all three mean sie then a lot of people are confused.

You, she, they in German

I hope you have learned much more than just how to say I love you in German!
