Hi David,


Thank you for your interesting questions.

Well, job descriptions in German always have a male and a female version: "der Anwalt" and "die Anwรคltin".


The progressive tense for "erinnern" actually does exist, but is not used often. You're right that "sich erinnern" as a reflexive verb does not really need the progressive form. In general, progressive tense is not used much.


The infinitive "gewinnen" is indeed very similar to the past participle "gewonnen". Be careful with the pronounciation.


We will check the lessons and try to find the error.


Thank you so much for your last commment. We are glad that you enjoy it. Keep on learning. :smile:

Ich habe einige Fragen. Ist eine Anwaltin a term for female lawyers and Anwalt for male lawyers? Or is the word simply a feminine noun in all cases?


Also - why is there no present progressive tense used with the verb errinen? Does it have something to do with it being a reflexive verb in German? (Die Frau errinert sich an die Nummer but there is NO Die Frau errinert sich gerade an die Nummer?) I suppose progressive tenses have only limited application.


Also an observation. Gewinnen is a strange verb when used in the present tense. It sounds as if it is already a past participle, doesn't it?


Ich habe auch eine probleme mit meiner Dashboard. It recommends a lesson I can never find. Perhaps it doesn't exist?


Lastly, a comment. Germanpod101 is undoubtedly the best German language program I have ever seen. You should all be very proud of yourselves!


Vielen Dank!
