Vocabulary Phrase Usage

1. Wollen wir nicht 'du' sagen?“ is an easy way you can request the switch to informal German if you're

sick of calling someone 'Sie'. However, keep in mind that the older or more respected person is supposed to make this offer; you can't walk up to your girlfriend's mother for example and ask if you may address her informally, that would be out of place.

2. „aber“ can be used for emphasis, for example in „du vergisst aber viel“ (you DO forget a lot)

We've seen the Accusative forms all over the lessons, now let's have the full overview. ich – mich du – dich er – ihn es – es (unchanged) sie – sie (unchanged) wir – uns ihr – euch sie – sie / Sie – Sie (unchanged) The question word for these is not „wer“ but „when“.
