Most of us don’t know about the grammar of our own language, we just speak it. So when it comes to learning German, you’ll need to get used to all different grammar terms as well as learning the various rules of German grammar.

In order to speak fluently and to be able to build sentences quickly, it is essential to know German grammar rules. While they can seem intimidating and very different to English to begin with, with repeated use you will start to notice patterns.

German grammar does like to throw some added challenges to us English speakers. As you may know, German assigns genders to nouns, it adds endings to adjectives and it has four grammatical cases.

While basic sentence structure follows the same ‘subject verb object’ rule as English does, it quickly becomes quite different to English with the verb usually being in the second position, or sometimes going right to the end of the sentence.
