  5. How can I tell the difference…

How can I tell the difference between "she" and "they"?

I'm very new to the language, and this has been very hard for me so far. Is it the ending os the next word that gives it away, and if so what are the endings I should be looking for?

Thanks in advance!

by the conjugation after it

Sie isst = she eats
Sie essen = they eat

It's the ending of the verb that gives it away. The conjugations for they and she are different :) Learn the conjugation endings, that will make it a lot easier.

Ja, Kontext hilft viel so! Hier ist ein Lingot für dich. Just a thought; is Lingot masculine, feminine or neuter?
