Learn German-book.com A1 – „Sie“ (plural)


You are going to learn: <Common phrases, <how to express facts using negations, <the third person plural, <a lot of new vocabulary and <much more.

Within the final chapter of the book we consider a couple or a group of people (in our example: ‟Marcus and Diana”) as ‟sie” (=”they”) being generally negative. So we have the chance to practice negative expressions in German!

You will find out that some of the nouns are coloured, but that is not really a big deal as we do not focus on the gender of the nouns here. More or less, we concentrate on the way Germans express negations . They use negative expressions like ‟nicht” (=‟not”), ‟kein/e/r,…”(in English: ‟no“ in a sense of ‟not a”), ‟niemand” (=‟nobody”), ‟nichts” (=‟nothing”), ‟nirgendwo” (=‟nowhere”), ‟niemals! (=‟never”). So imagine ‟them” (Marcus and Diana) as being broadly negative!

This chapter also, of course, focusses on the third person plural and the corresponding verb endings (which are highlighted).
