Conjugations of the verb sein (to be)
Like in English, sein (to be) is completely irregular, and its conjugations simply need to be memorized. Again, you will learn the plural forms soon.
English German I am ich bin
you (singular informal) are du bist
he/she/it is er/sie/es ist
Ich schwimme (I swim)
Du schwimmst (You swim)
Er/sie/es schwimmt (He/she/it swims)
sie schwimmen (They swim)
ihr schwimmt (You all / y'all swim)
wir schwimmen (We swim)
Sie schwimmen (You [formal] swim)
So the infinitive form of the verb is schwimmen
It ends in -en, that is its root. To conjugate the verb, just mentally drop the -en and take the stem of the verb (scwhimm) and then add the ending that each pronoun has.
If you don’t get that here’s a link:
Hi Dat_Cool_One, your post is a bit uncomfortable to read, if you want to make lines go beneath eachother, just put two spaces at the end of the line that should stop and that will make the lines go beneath eachother [two spaces]
like this! Hope this helps!
Thx for the suggestion.
This information is useless without explaining also how to obtain the root onto which to attach the ending.
Thanks for that :) .. It makes things a little more logical rather than guessing or memorising all the conjugations for each verb.
Your welcome always glad to help
