Cultural Insight
Eric: Now it's time for a quick cultural insight.
Albert: When using the verb kommen together with other verbs like “come and see” you always use the infinitive form kommen. For example, kommen und gehen - “come and go”, or kommen und sehen - “come and see”. When you combine verbs in this way, they actually function like a noun!

Outro

Eric: And that’s all for this lesson. Don’t forget to check out the lesson notes, and we’ll see you in the next lesson!

So I am a little confused between "Kommst du" and "Kommt ihr"? Is one singular and the latter for a group?

Hi Nil,


Thank you for your question!👍

You are probably not the only one wondering.


"Kommen Sie zu meiner Party?" is the polite, formal

way of saying the same thing. It depends on your relationship

with the person(s) you are inviting.


If you have any questions, please let us know.


Kind regards,

Hi

Could we say "Kommen Sie zu meiner Party" instead of "Kommt ihr zu meiner Party"

are these two the same meaning?

Thank you by the way.
