How to Learn a Language

 

 

This is a list of 1700 English to German words, you can go through all of them if you want, you will realize that I listed only commonly used German vocabulary, I tried to avoid including words that you use rarely, I hope this little German dictionary will help, please try to memorize as many as you can, because the vocabulary is as important as grammar, even more important. if you’re looking for a specific word just go to the toolbars on the top of this page and click on “Edit” then click on “Find (on this page)”, type the word you’re looking for, once you hit “enter” the word will be highlighted for you! This list is following an alphabetical order. So if you’re looking for how to say or what does a German word mean just look below.

This page will only have letters from A-E in order minimize the loading time, for the rest of the list click here:

F-O P-Z

 

m = masculine which means that a “der” or “ein” before it should be used as an article.

f = feminine and therefore should have “die” or “eine” before it if you want to use it with articles.

n = neuter and should have “das” or “ein” before it if you want to use it with articles.

pl = plural and should have a “die” in case you need to use an article.
