Hallo, I am Sandra, teacher of German as a foreign language, trying to make it not so foreign anymore for a wide range of students.

The hopes that means Capital City the same way we have d Each Cassa, meaning street and the help destroy AZA, meaning Main Street Dear Klutz Square and their hoped Plats Main Square, their van hoof train station.

Isha Khan do const As easy as can via Colonel You can't Zichron h most do most as es most via missin You missed z Merson issued off dude off, just as he is stuff we a different your drift z different. So the first thing that's quite obvious is that these words lose their own load the two cute little dots and singular and find him again in the plural. The second thing is that in the first and third person singular, there is no ending. See, So instead, off our regular present tense endings e s t t ntn we have nothing. S t nothing. NT end B sides. They're silly congregation. We also mentioned that the model of herbs will often be accompanied by another verb in the sentence, and this other worms will always be in the infinitive form. At the end of those sentence, let's check out a few examples. Comes to me better helpful. Volcan is defending via Kernan in East Common.

If we want to talk about an unidentified person in German, we will use the indefinite phone Woman month. It sounds much worse than it is, and it's actually quite easy and simple to use. Let's see the indefinite pronoun in German that we're going to talk about. Today is a month and watch out there. It's not Munn like men. It's written without the capital letter and with only one end. So don't mix them up. Money would be translated as one or you. But let me explain it with some examples, man, Can he would. Essen, You can eat good food here. Here. I'm not talking about you. You But I'm basically talking about anyone and everyone. Man, can Alisyn gearshift Calvin One can buy everything at the store. Fear doesn't punished parking. It's not allowed to park here in German. We will always need to have a subject in the sentence and this sentences at arrested everyone. Nobody is allowed to park here, so we will put the little bird month here as the subject Notice that money will take the form off the third person singular and the verb will be conjugated like that. Here. Come. And so when you could coffin, you can buy souvenirs here. Nothing. Krieg, Hartman distract reader off about. The city was rebuilt after the war. So let's try and put our little text about buying tickets that we read in the last lesson. And instead of do use month, this is their Farquhar to know to my so yes, Muslim hours feeling Venture far. Cartman, Call from Mr Wilkin. Villain Game done. Mussman and scheiding FARC out of fear of Oxana Odor Kingda Dinner Zerman Demons in China in Given one can also made a credit card is stolen. Menzel Defar Carter owned us Pixel girl Neiman on the credit. Cartoonish Ferguson for there. Isa Mossman off the far Carta Interaction. Yes. Common law skin. Go to five. I don't owe with 8. 2.07 - Regeln und Verbote (Rules and prohibitions): Vegan owned Fair Board means rules and Ben's. Let's learn how to understand them to not be ruled or even verse break. Some laws four Rules and band swivel often use a mull verb and the indefinite condominium on, for example. Here, Duckman, next of Alkhan sheared off managed Park in Here, have punished photo coffee in Honda Missin Underline design Monday off from our Bond. Next loud sign here. Dove punished. Sh Women Monday off DT ago. Finished for Ton Man, muscle lungs and father. She almost finalized. Design. He, um Wissman off person. Wow, what a strict place. But let's examine the sentences a little bit. For example, here, Deaf Managed Falcon, we have the Indefinite Con Woman a month. We have the motive over Dolphin, and it's in the third person singular because it's conjugated. According to the indefinite pronoun Munn, we also have the verb falcon in the infinite form, because that's what Mullah verbs asked for in the sentence. Do you do founded something 9. 2.08 - Imperativ (Imperative): close the window. Eat your dinner. Come here. Be quiet. What's this? No, I didn't suddenly get aggressive. I just wanted to introduce you to the imperative. It's a form used for giving instructions or advice, but it will also be used for commands and orders. In this lesson, we will learn how to make it and use it. The imperative is used for expressing commands, requests, prohibits shins or sometimes advice. We will have an imperative form for this second person. Singular do for a plural e a end, the formal Z form. So how to build the imperative? Let's take, for example, of the verb if none to open. So for the imperative off do we will first turn the verb and to do form do, if less. And after that we will remove the present tense ending Esty, and that's it. If no, that's the imperative form for do or, for example, gay n g zinging zinc common come. This means that if a verb is irregular and changing its them, this will also be visible and the imperative, for example, leasing Lease Z and Z. However, this will not happen for the verbs that change a into our midterm loud, so it will be far them. Far informal and elevated language weevil often add an E too many works, but in colloquial speech, re generally leave it out. So, for example, you can use Vartan Vaht and vodka for the new form. The exception will, of course, be the words have been n Zain Hub and Zay. This wasn't so difficult, right? So let's jump to the next one. Yeah, for you, it's even simpler. The imperative is the same as the present tense form. So, for example, you gate, the imperative is get vital, write it zing in zinc. This couldn't be easier, right? And let's also check the formal Z form. For this, we will again take the verb in the present tense Z Barton and for the imperative, let's just switch their places. What super easy latency, zinging zing, NZ, G n, Gin Z and so on. So one more time we have the imperative for do for EEA and for Z for Do we just turned a verb in to the second person singular and removed the ending for e, uh, be turned of urban. This second person plural and just removed the pronoun and for Z, we turned the verb into the third person plural and just changed the place off the verb and the proposition. Land George. Musty off garbine boob Fear Hubs Bus, do you? 10. 2.09 - Hotel buchen (Booking a hotel): and this lesson, we'll learn how you can book yourself a nice hotel room at a hostel. Or maybe an Airbnb call.
