In the section of Tips and Notes belonging to the unit Verbs: Present 1 it says:

" In addition, when a verb stem ends in -s, second and third person plural forms will look the same:

lesen (to read) — du liest, er liest This is because the -s- from du …-st and the -s from the verb stem merge".

I think there is a mistake: it is the second and third person singular, not the plural ones, as the examples who come right after show.

Best regards.

Yes, you are right. It should be: "...second and third person singular forms will look the same:..."

The verb lesen is conjugated like this in German:

ich lese, du liest, er liest, wir lesen, ihr lest, sie lesen

Yes... I know that, but that has nothing to do with my message...
