ihr is said more yeeair and wir is said more weer. I had a problem with that too, hope this smooths things.
Think "eer" and "veer".
I don't know what's right or wrong, but to me this is a contradiction http://i.imgur.com/2skLwAV.png
No, it isn't. Jungen would mean young if it were an adjective, and adjectives aren't capitalized all the time in German.
"Wir sind jung" means we're young. Jungen, capitalized in the middle of a sentence, is a noun.
Actually, it would have to be "Wir sind jung." to mean "We are young.". One correct sentence would be "Wir sind die jungen Mädchen." which translates to "We are the young girls.". "jung" and der Junge" are different words (young, boy).
You're right, edited. Jungen would be an adjective meaning young when preceding a noun (the young girls, boys, etc).
Doesnt jungen mean boy?
depending on context it can be a certain form of "boy" (object), "boys" (subject) or the adjective "young".
I see the boy -> Ich sehe den Jungen
The boys are here -> Die Jungen sind hier
The young horses are strong -> Die jungen Pferde sind stark
So is somebody kind enough to please tell me what the difference between sind and seid is?
Sind means 'we are' seid = ' you all are' kay?
Can someone give me a rundown of the types of "are" ?
Ich bin ein Junge -> I am a boy
Du bist ein Junge -> You are a boy
Er ist ein Junge -> He is a boy
Wir sind Jungen -> We are boys
Ihr seid Jungen -> You are boys
Sie sind Jungen -> They are boys (also "formal" you are boys)
what are bist, sein and sind?
They are all forms of "to be", "sein".
"I am" - "ich bin"
"you are" - "Du bist"
"he is" - "er ist"
"we are" - "wir sind"
"you are" - "Ihr seid"
"they are" - "sie sind"
You are - du bist and ihr seid. How come?
"Du bist" is for "you" in singular and "ihr seid" is for "you" in plural.
Hi, can someone please explain the different German usage of the word 'are' ?
the verb is sein (to be) and each noun has a conjugation of it. Ich bin, er/sie/es ist, ihr seid, wir/sie/Sie sind
Why cann't we use bist instead of sind? both word have meaning of "are"?
German grammar rules don't allow it.
