I is ich
You is ihr
We is wir
He is er
She is sie
It is es

All nouns have genders (he, she, neutral) so a table is a he and a chair is a she (I think)...so there is a lot more to it...

Oh, it's not that simple...

I = ich
you (singular)(informal) = du
he/she/it = er/sie/es
we = wir
you (plural)(informal) = ihr
you (singular or plural)(formal) = Sie
they = sie

Capital letters are important in writing. Take note

Table(der Tisch) and chair (der Stuhl) are both male.
Flower (die Blume) for example is female.
House (das Haus) is neutral.

And they change depending on the "cases". @.@ Good luck learning.

Anyway, I guess this can be placed in the [SIG] Alles Deutschland ("Everything Germany")

Sometimes (esp. online), when the ???? are not available, people type ae, oe, ue and ss respectively instead. So ? is really just pronounced as a long s.

Lesson 1:

How do we say

Hello! Hallo!
Good morning! Guten Morgen!
Good afternoon! Guten Tag!
Good night! Gute Nacht!
Have a nice day! Sch?nen Tag!
Goodbye! (informal)Tsch?ss! (formal)Auf Wiedersehen!
I love you! Ich liebe dich!
Miss you! (I'm not sure... never said it. haha)
Thank you! Danke, danke sch?n, vielen Dank...
How are you? (informal) Wie geht es dir/ Wie geht's? (formal)Wie geht es Ihnen?
I am fine, thank you! Mir geht es gut, danke!

And some nouns+gender

Book
Pen
Pencil
Box
Dictionary

Oh my, I'm so sorry, I started a new thread under language and literature about German because I didn't know this thread already existed elsewhere (my mistake to only search the language forum for the thread).

Anyway, I can speak/read/write German although I'm still always trying to find ways to improve it, but I can definitely help with basics and beginner German (I'm about Advanced level) so I'd be happy to teach German.

My thread is here though. And it would really be kinda troublesome for me to hunt down every thread with questions about the German language because I don't usually spend time in forums, so it'd be great if you could direct your questions there somehow?

Also, I miss you - Ich vermisse dich! or alternatively "Du fehlst mir"
