Hi David,


Thank you for spotting that. It really is โ€œMaklerinโ€ in German.

We will fix it as soon as possible! The word "Kunde" gets an "n" in the end because it is a "weak" noun.

In German certain masculine nouns are โ€œweakโ€ and take an โ€œnโ€ ending in all cases except the nominative. An example aside from "Kunde" would be "Junge" for "boy". While the nominative is "der Junge", all other forms (Accusative, Dative, Genitive) are having the "n" in the end. So it would be "dem Jungen", "den Jungen", "des Jungen".


I hope his helps. Please us know if you have any questions.

Hi. You have spelt Maklerin incorrectly.


Also, why does Kunde get an "n" on the end? I thought that Kunden was plural.

So Kunde is a weak noun, therefore mit dem Kunden?

Hi SJ,


"leben" is "living" in general. "living things", "living in an apartment", but "wohnen" is especially "living in an apartment".


So they can mean the same thing, but do not have to ;)


Kind Regards,

Hi Bianca,


Thank you for writing!


You are quite correct :) Most (almost all) people will say "kucken" even though "gucken" would be the more "correct" way.

Hi!

I was wondering, the verb 'gucken' sounds an awful lot like it's being pronounced 'kucken.' Is this just my hearing or is this how it's pronounced?

Thank you! :)

Hi Ally,


Thank you for writing!


You are hearing correctly! When Germans talk, they will mostly not pronounce the -en at the end of verbs etc :)

This makes learning the language a bit more difficult, but this is how we speak.


I hope you'll enjoy discovering new things about the German language with us!


Regards,

I noticed the pronunciation with some words ending with 'en'... is incomplete.


For example:

ausruhen.. it was pronounced as ausruh.. "en" is missing..

zurรผckkehren... it was read as zurรผckkehr...


or is my hearing problem?
