"The boy is drinking water."
Translation:Der Junge trinkt Wasser.
How to pronounce the W? Is it an English W or is it an English V. It sounds about halfway tp me.
Mädchen is neuter because any German word that ends in a diminutive (-chen, -lein, etc.) is neuter no matter the gender of the actual object. So a girl is female, but ein Mädchen is neuter.
Both are conjugated forms of "trinken." Use "trinkt" for the third-person singular (er, sie, es) and for the second-person familiar plural (ihr). Use "trinkst" for the second-person familiar singular (du).
Hello everyone, when I ask for a translation on the internet, I get the following examples.
'Der Junge trinkt' translates to: The boy drinks 'Der Junge ist trinkt' translates to: The boy is drinking 'Der Junger ist trinkt wasser' translates to: The boy is drinking water. Is it ok to use the word ''ist'' when referring to someone who is doing something? Could someone give me some more examples of when and when not to use the work ''ist'' Thanks Fred WHOOPS! Just spotted 'WolfStriker1's' reply down below. Thanks once again.
