How do i differentiate between Ihr and Er? It seems incredibly difficult on the app.
Like most others have said [ihr] sounds more like "ear" auf Englisch and [er] sounds more like "air" :)
"er" could be either "he" or "it" in English, depending on context. Thus far in this test, I have now learned to give only the "dumbed down" reply -- because alternative answers are invariably marked as "incorrect."
So I'm a little confused here, if.. "Er" Means he then.. what does Ihr mean? Or can I use them both interchangeably? Please help. thanks!
Singular 1. I - ich 2. you - du 3. he, she, it - er, sie, es Plural 1. we - wir 2. you - ihr 3. they - sie , Sie (this is a form you use when you are refering to someone older than you- you use it out of respect-I mean the capitalised one)
Ihr (with a «I») means your (polite form) and ihr (with a «i») means her, or a plural you.
Him = ihn. Because it's accusative.
An action is done to Lukas. I love Lukas = I love him. Ich liebe ihn.
Things can be masculine, feminine or neutral in German. If the things is masculine, it's «it» in English, «Er» can also be for an Human, and in this case, it's «he» in English.
