Exercise 3 for Lesson 1


Check out our first personal pronouns:

Sie      you (formal)
ich      I
er        he

In German, verbs change according to the personal pronoun you use. Do you see a pattern?

ich komme  I come
er kommt     he comes

ich heiße    I’m called
er heißt       he is called

  3   Fill the gaps. Use Sie, ich, er.

Woher kommen ?

komme aus Russland.

Wie heißen ?

heiße Igor.

Wo wohnen ?

wohne in China.

Und woher kommt ?

Aus Deutschland. heißt Paul. wohnt in Frankfurt.



Some words often go together:

wohnen + in
Ich wohne in Deutschland.
I live in Germany.

kommen + aus
Ich komme aus Deutschland.
I come from Germany.

Beware of false friends!

wo sounds like who
but it means where

wer sounds like where
but it means who

 💡  Learning suggestion

Research shows that there is a connection between elapsed time and forgetting:

Elapsed time     is forgotten

20 minutes          30-45%
1 day                   50-65%
1 week         .. 70-75%
1 month         .    80%

Using our flashcards can prevent that. Our best students use them several times a week – and you should, too!
