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
Do you see the difference between German and English? In English there exists only the article “the” and in German there are three ones: der – die – das!
What you really should know about the German article:
Every noun in German has an arbitrary article, which you have to learn, but there are some hints, if it is der, die oder das.
