Some exercises about 'kommen' and 'sein'

When you do the exercises on this page, try to remember that you will learn the German pronunciation best if you speak aloud as often as possible. So if you are not in a library right now, raise your voice and say the answers to these exercises aloud before you check them by moving the mouse over the -fields.

Exercise
Using the given English pronouns and the pictures showing famous places in different countries, construct the according German sentence.



Example:
we +
Wir kommen aus Deutschland.

move mouse over ?-fields
for correct answers
1) I +
?
2) you (pl.) +
?
3) they +
?
4) you (sing.) +
?
5) she +
?
6) you (formal) +
?
7) he +
?
Note: When we talk about the US in German, we say 'Ich komme aus den USA'. The reason for this is still beyond what you know about German. But, later in this course it will become clear why we have to put 'den' in front of USA.


Now we do the same thing with a form of 'sein' + 'geboren'. Can you say in German, in which cities the following people were born? Exercise
Using the given English pronouns and the pictures showing famous places in different countries, construct the according German sentence.



Example:
Niels (Frankfurt)
Niels ist in Frankfurt geboren.

move mouse over ?-fields
for correct answers
1) Katrin (München)
?
2) we (Wien/Vienna)
?
3) they (Düsseldorf)
?
4) you (sing.) (Zürich)
?
5) I (Mainz)
?
6) he (Essen)
?
7) you (pl.) (Genf/Geneva)
?
8) Anne (Frankfurt)
?
