Our, Your, Their in German

Our, Your, Their in German

Here is the continuation of lesson No 22 because we have a few possessive pronouns left. 

This time I’m going to show you how to use the words: our, your, their in German. I recommend repeating basic lesson No 22: My, your, his, her in German before or after this lesson.

unser / euer / ihr

We use unser, euer, and ihr when these words refer to a noun with a masculine or neuter article.

der Opa (der = masculine article)
Baby (das = neuter article)

We use unsere, eure, and ihre when these words refer to a noun with a feminine or plural article.

die Oma (die = feminine article)
die Kinder (die = plural article)

How To Learn With This Lesson

Challenge 2 

If you have practiced with basic lesson No 22 My, your, his, her in German like I suggested then you have learned a lot. Before the lessons get easier again I want you to practice with this lessons like you did with lesson No 22:

Read the following sentences in German several times until you understand them (check the English translation when you need it).

Then read and listen to them until you do understand the audio without the text.

You can learn so much more with this lesson. Not only the topic: possessive pronouns but you will also learn new words, their pronunciation and you will become much more familiar with the German structure.

Our in German = unser/unsere

Unser Opa ist sehr stark.
Our grandfather is very strong.

Unsere Oma ist sehr hübsch.
Our grandmother is very pretty.

Unser Opa ist stärker als unsere Oma.
Our grandfather is stronger than our grandmother.

Aber unsere Oma ist hübscher als unser Opa!
However our grandmother is prettier than our grandfather!

Unser Opa sagt immer zu ihr: „Du bist das aller Schönste, was mir je passiert ist.“
Our grandfather always says to her: „You are the most beautiful thing that has ever happened to me.“

Und unsere Oma antwortet immer: „Jede Frau ist schön, nur manchmal bedarf es den richtigen Mann, um das zu sehen.“
And our grandmother always replies: „Every woman is beautiful, it sometimes just takes the right guy to see it.“

Sie sind noch immer sehr verliebt.
They are still very much in love.
