In this regard, what is Praeteritum in German?
The Präteritum is equivalent to the English Simple Past tense, so to speak. But usually, the Präteritum is not used in everyday language in German. It is rather used as a literary language. Germans commonly opt for the Perfekt in their speech in order to refer to the past – which will be discussed in my upcoming post.
Beside above, what are the German tenses? German has six tenses: present (Präsens), present perfect (Perfekt), simple past (Präteritum), past perfect (Plusquamperfekt), future (Futur I) and future perfect (Futur II).
Hereof, what is plusquamperfekt in German?
The German Plusquamperfekt tense is equivalent to the English Past Perfect tenses (both the simple and the progressive form). Thus, you use this tense in order to refer to an action or actions that had happened before another action in the past. But the German Plusquamperfekt is seldom used in independent statements.
What are the verb endings in German?
As you can see, if you are learning German and want to form sentences in the present tense, you have to learn these six verb endings: -e, -st, -t, -en, -t, -en.
