Hello there! We’re going to dive a bit deeper into the German language today and focus on genitive pronouns. They indicate possession, or in other words, show that something belongs to someone.
They are an essential part of the German language and are used very frequently in everyday conversation, just like in English when we say “my,” “your,” “his,” “her,” and so on.
In the following exercises, we will learn how to construct sentences using genitive pronouns, translate sentences from English to German, expand our vocabulary, and apply everything we’ve learned in a short text. So, let’s get started!
