i got it..as its sehen it should be they.......if its she then it should be sieht.......
ah, okay, "Sie" here is the formal plural of "You" and not the "They." Danke schon :)
It's a bit confusing. How is one supposed to know the meaning while reading? Even talking, it confuses me.
In English when you say "I'm seeing someone" it means you're dating that person.
Sorry. But doesn't it supposed to be Ihr for 'You' and not Sie. Doesn't Sie for 'they'? Sorry im confused.
Oh. I just read the above comment. 'They see us' acceptable. But why it is correct to use 'You' see us - as the answer?
I strongly think "They are seeing us" should not be reported as mistaken answer.
Why can't it be "They are looking at us"? The glossary gave 'looking at' as one of the meanings.
Actually, Ihr is informal and plural, like "y'all" in English. To my understanding, Sie is used for all Formal usages of you
I always get confused whether "Sie" means: They, She or you. How can I identity the correct one?
The translate says that sehen could be watching, but if i put watching it says its incorrect. Fix that, the term is correct
Sie sehen they see sentence showing plural Sie they and Sie sehe she see ( Sie sehen ) sehe(n) added n change sentence into plural Sie sehen
I thought 'Sie' meant either she or they and 'Er' meant he. Apparently I'm mistaken!
I thought 'sie' was for 'she' and 'they', how it could be for 'you'??!!
The translation had "they see us" why now its changing to formal "you see us"?
Firstly, because it's incorrect English (when the subject is "she", the verb form is "sees" with an -s at the end), and secondly, because it's not a correct translation of the German.
sie sehen means "they see" and Sie sehen means "you see" -- at the beginning of a sentence, where the first word is capitalised, you cannot see the difference.
But it cannot mean "she sees".
"she sees" is sie sieht.
The sie form that means "she" almost always takes a verb form ending in -t; the sie form that means "they" almost always takes a verb form ending in -en.
Here, you have one in -en and not in -t.
Given the material so far, it should be They see us. I suspect the "You" here might be formal, but that hasn't been covered yet.
Mizinamo, why wouldn't She Work instead of They? The side bar shows Her meaning a "she"???
Mizinamo, why wouldn't She Work instead of They?
Because the verb form is wrong for that.
"she" verb forms end in -t, "they" verb forms in -en.
So "she sees" is sie sieht with -t, "they see" is sie sehen with -en.
Since this sentence has sie sehen, it can only mean "they see" and not "she sees".
