TO BE OR NOT TO BE
TO BE OR NOT TO BE.....
is more than just a question.
This simple, most basic of all words is literally the most
important verb you will ever learn. No kidding!
It can literally improve your speaking ability by several
magnitudes. Imagine how great it would be if you were able to communicate your
basic state of mind or being in German!
I AM---- add any adjective or noun
Tired, rich, hungry, socially disadvantaged, American, a
lawyer, a snob, a nerd--- the possibilities are endless.
With the verb “to be”, “sein” in German, you can express who
and what you are and who and what you are not.
Even in English, this verb is irregular. And in German?
1st person: I am 1st person: Ich bin
2nd person: you are 2nd person: Du bist
3rd person: he, she or it is 3rd person: Er, sie, es ist
1st person: we are 1st person: Wir sind
2nd person: you (you guys) are 2nd person: Ihr seid
3rd person: they are 3rd person: Sie sind
Polite: Sie sind
“Ms. Müller is tired” translates to what in German?
Sein oder nicht sein, das ist eben die Frage!
