Verbs in German Grammar


Verbs, or doing words, express an action (e.g. gehen – to go), a process (e.g. schlafen – to sleep), or a state of being (sein – to be). German verbs have to be conjugated, which means they change their ending depending on who or what you are talking about, whether the verb refers to a singular or plural noun and which tense you are using.
