"The sky is falling."
Translation:Der Himmel fällt.
Why not "Der Himmel ist fällt? Does" Der Himmel fällt" not translate to "The sky falling"? Why no ist?
Just like you don´t say "I am eat" in English. You say "I am eating" or "I eat", but there is no progressive tense ( "I am eating" ) in German.
Both is correct: "Der Himmel fällt herab." and "Der Himmel fällt herunter."
fällt = (he/she/it) falls/is falling
fallen = (to) fall (infinitive) / (we/they) fall
In English-German lessions you will find an onscreen keyboard right below the input field.
Using Mac OS or OS X, a letter with double dots can be produced by pressing ⌥ Option+U, then the letter. This works on English and other keyboards and is documented further in the supplied manuals.
On several operating systems, double-dotted letters can be written by entering Alt codes. On Microsoft Windows keyboard layouts that do not have double dotted characters, one can especially use Windows Alt keycodes.
