The 8th lesson contains the German pronouns including the subject, object and possessive forms. In addition, you will find a vocabulary list about travel and finally some general common phrases. I will try to give examples using both vocabulary and grammar. That way it will be easy for you to see the words when they are separate and when they are in a sentence. Going through the whole page should take about 30 min. Make sure to read the pronunciation and hear the audio as well. If you have any question about this course, please email me directly at German Classes.
Pronouns are a must to learn because they are part of almost every sentence. They make up about 20% of the daily language use which includes the subject, object and possessive pronoun. If there is an lesson you should NOT skip, this would be one of them.
We will start with the subject pronouns since it's the most used of the 4 forms that you might come across or use very often. 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.
Object pronouns are another important one you should make sure you master.
|You||dir, dich, Ihnen, Sie|
|Can you call us?||Können Sie uns anrufen?|
|Give me your phone number||Gib mir deine Telefonnummer|
|I can give you my email||ich kann dir meine Email-Adresse geben|
|Tell him to call me||Sag ihm, dass er mich anrufen soll|
Now we will discuss the possessive pronoun also called possessive determiners which is very straight forward and self explanatory. You use it when you want to express that something belongs to you but usually it comes before a noun.
|Your||dein, deine, Ihr, Ihre|
|His email is...||Seine Email-Adresse ist…|
|My phone number is...||Meine Telefonnummer ist ...|
|Our dream is to visit Spain||Unser Traum ist es, nach Spanien zu reisen|
|Their country is beautiful||Ihr Land ist schön|

As for the possessive case of the pronoun, it is used differently because it does not have to come before a noun. Check out the examples!

|By bus||Mit dem Bus|
|By taxi||Mit dem Taxi|
