I have written this unit to try to address a difficulty that I regularly come across with learners of language, namely the ability to recognise that many different subjects all use the same part of the verb.
For example, the third person singular (er / sie /es) form of the verb can follow er, sie or es, but it can also follow any other singular third person subject, e.g. mein Bruder, der Kuli, meine Freundin Ellie, eine Schildkröte.
I have also covered the first person plural (wir) and the third person plural (sie) forms
The first few activities address the issue in English before moving into German.
