"The woman drinks."

Translation:Die Frau trinkt.

I am having a little trouble understanding when and how to use the nomative "Die" vs. the feminine/ masculine pronouns of (Der/ Die, and the neuter Das).

Der is for males, Die for women, and Das for neutral things or those who end with CHEN like MadCHEN.

Well, if you're just translating "The woman drinks," yes. You've written "The woman drinks water."

What is the major difference between trinke and trinkt because I seem to always mix the two up. :(

June 11, 2013


With my initial understanding, trinkt is used for describing the action of another person. He is drinking water - Er trinkt Wasser. Trinke is used to describe the action of self. I am drinking water - Ich trinke Wasser. Both are present tense.

But when would it be appropriate to use trinkst?

Why to the child ( das kind) / the woman ( Die Frau) / the boy ( Der Junge) always use same verb, example Er/Sie isst Brot, das kind isst Brot, Die Frau isst Brot, Der Junge isst Brot.
