the German article – der, die, das

One of the biggest problems German learners have with is the German article, although German is very similar to the English language. It has to do, that in German there is not only the article “the”, but three ones, “der – die – das”.

But let’s start with some easy examples:

  • the man – der Mann
  • the woman – die Frau
  • the child – das Kind
