    :wavey:

    Does this sentence:

    Die meister Stuhle sind besetzt.

    Contain a present grammar item? besetzt? I know "sitzen" or "sitzende", which means to sit or sit down...I can't believe I forgot this. Das Maedchen sitzt. Yes, I think that is right. Uh....

    :( Wo sind jedermann?

    How do you know when to use habe, bin? I know habe = have and bin = am, but...Ich bin in das Wasser gesprungen. Why can't it be Ich habe?

    Because I explained why already in this thread. You use bin in the past with verbs of motion or change of state. Anything that describes any movement or action usually uses sein. It's that simple.

    Shithouse. Incredibly busy with uni. But I finished my thesis dissertation and handed in another large assignment today so it's slowly easing off before exams start.
