Nouns are the most used words in German. They consist of about 35% of part of speech in term of usage. They can help describe living creatures, objects, places, actions, qualities, states of existence, or ideas.

Below is a list of some nouns that you might come across or use very often. That includes some singular and plural forms, as well as feminine and masculine forms. The table contains 3 columns (English, German, and Audio). Make sure you repeat each word after hearing it by either clicking on the audio button or by reading the pronunciation. That should help with memorization as well as improving your pronunciation.
