German sentence construction

It is also important to not only learn the various verbs, adverbs, etc., in the German language, but in order to speak with people or read it you must know how to form sentences properly. Some of the things you have to know how to do are to transform singular sentences to plural sentences; learn how to form subordinate clauses; dass or das; learn how to form questions; and to know the proper word order, negation and how to use commas. All of these topics are vital if you want to speak German properly and be understood.

In learning how to make verbs plural in German, you have to remember that some nouns in the German language are always plural. It can be confusing to English speakers because not only are some always plural, but some common words in English that are always plural (like weeds) would be singular in the German language. Another tough area is the subordinate clause. This is when one part of the sentence can't be used by itself and is dependent on another word or phrase. So, you have to use words to introduce it like dass or ob or weil, which are conjunctions.

Learning how to form a question in German usually starts with words like "wi," "was," or "wir," which mean "how," "what," or "who".
