German Language Basics For Beginners [2023]

Here are some basic German language concepts to get you started:

Nouns: In German, all nouns are capitalized. Plurals are formed by adding -n or -en to the end of the noun.

Articles: The definite article (the) is der for masculine nouns, die for feminine nouns, and das for neutral nouns. The indefinite article (a/an) is ein for masculine and neutral nouns and eine for feminine nouns.

Verbs: German verbs are conjugated to match the subject of the sentence. For example, the verb “to speak” is sprechen in its infinitive form, but it becomes ich spreche (I speak), du sprichst (you speak), er/sie/es spricht (he/she/it speaks), etc. depending on the subject.

Word order: In German, the verb is usually placed in second position in a sentence. For example, “Ich spiele Tennis” (I play tennis) has the subject (Ich) in first position, the verb (spiele) in second position, and the object (Tennis) in third position.
