Small Tip: statistically "die" (feminine) is the most common article. If you don't know, pick "die", that has the best chance of being correct (by a small margin, but a margin no less).How can pavement have a gender?
Same with any other language that uses them. Learning french is equally confusing in that way when you come from a german background ...In Italian too.
One of the biggest problems I have with German is actually memorizing nouns' gender.
Of course it is. French genders for nouns make mostly perfect sense to me, thanks to our common latin ancestry.Same with any other language that uses them. Learning french is equally confusing in that way when you come from a german background ...
Speak the words in your head while you write them. The T in 'ist' is quite a strong and distinctive sound, hard to ignore or forgetThere's some words that sound similar to English words and when the software I'm using asks to write stuff out after it's spoken to me, I will write the English word. So far, it's been "is" and "ist." So, when I proofread and then am told it's wrong, I don't catch it.
It's making sense... I think.The gender noun deal is getting easier to understand as shown here:
It depends on what the noun ends in.
Also, how the hell is a street feminine?
