    ~German for beginners ~

    Ok hey guys ^^ So i thought id give some basic lessons in German and whoever is interested could ask questions, no matter the level ^///^

    Lesson 1:


    Guten Tag = Good Day (used the same way as good evening or good morning)
    Guten Abend = Good evening
    Guten Morgen = Good Morning
    Hallo = Hello (simple but necessary)

    Question words, also called W-Wörter in German:

    Wie? = How?
    Was? = What?
    Wer? = Who?
    Wo? = Where?
    Wann? = When?
    Warum?/Wieso? = Why?
    Wem? = Whom?


    Ich = I
    Du/Sie = You
    Er = he
    Sie = She
    Es = it

    Wir = We
    Ihr = You
    Sie = They


    Du = Thou/Impolite
    Sie = You/Polite

    => For the polite form, the same conjugation as the plural is used

    Key Questions:

    Wie geht es dir? = How art thou (Casual for how are you?)
    Wie geht es Ihnen? = How are you? (polite)
    Wo ist die Toilette? or Wo ist das WC? = Where is the toilet?
    Was machst du? = What are you doing?
    Wie heisst du? = What art thou called?
    Wie heissen Sie? = What are you called?
    (Even though you can ask Was ist dein/Ihr Name? (whats your name) it is very uncommon)

    Ok Please do tell me what you think and feel free to ask questions, but both preferably in private because i kinda want this to stay in a nice order XD
