You certainly are confused. In the body of your post you have two Trinkens but only one in the title :-/

Sorry I cannot help you though as I don't know any German, but if you moced the post to the German forum you may get more response.

German has conjugation. English has it too, but the only differences are the 3rd person sing. pronouns, eg. I drink vs he/she/it drinks.

Trinken = To drink

Ich trinke = I drink

Du trinkst = You (informal) drink

Es/sie/er trinkt = He/she/it drinks

Wir Trinken = We drink

Ihr trinkt = You (plural) drink

sie/Sie trinken = They/you (formal) drink
