Does this mean that the woman is wearing multiple jackets at the same time? Can anyone tell me if this is a good sentence in German?


I think it could mean to wear multiple jackets at the same time as in layering but I think it can also mean The woman is carrying the jackets


I would imagine the situation as being one in which she is the only one around who wears jackets.

    im confused, when is needed to use "ä" instead of "a" in trag?


    'tragen' is a stem-changing verb. All stem-changing verbs change in the "du" and "er/sie/es" forms.

    There are 3 types of stem-changers:

    a - ä : tragen - sie trägt, but wir tragen

    e - ie : sehen - du siehst, but ich sehe

    e - i : geben - es gibt, but ihr gebt

    Hope this helps!


    For er/sie/es you use trägt


    If I used "Mantel" here, this is one of those that changes to the ä in the plural--is there a rule for knowing when?
