Grammar Tips:

  • Verbs in the present tense: Practice conjugating verbs according to the subject pronouns (ich, du, er/sie/es, wir, ihr, sie/Sie).
  • Noun gender: Pay attention to the gender of each noun and use the appropriate definite (der, die, das) and indefinite (ein, eine) articles.
  • Plural forms: Some words have irregular plural forms, while others simply add an “-e”, “-en”, or “-er” ending. Practice the plural forms alongside the singular forms.


  1. Conjugate the following verbs in the present tense: Lesen (to read), Tanzen (to dance), Schreiben (to write), Reisen (to travel).
  2. Create sentences using at least five new vocabulary words from the list above.
  3. Write a short paragraph describing your favorite hobby and why you enjoy it.
