People and family related German vocabulary

Learn German words for your family members! Improve your ability to speak about people you love (hopefully).
female “die” nouns are red
male “der” nouns are blue
neuter “das” nouns are green

This is another category in which the aspiring German learner can breathe a sigh of relief. Most of the males in your family will take the masculine article "der", while most of the females will take the feminine article "die". There are, however, a couple of exceptions that you should be aware of, such as "das Mädchen" (the girl). This word is usually used to describe younger girls, while "die Frau" is used to describe adult women.

Your knowledge of noun genders plays a gigantic role in your ability to correctly apply German grammar rules. We have color coded the nouns on our site so you can more easily learn the articles that go with each noun, both improving your vocabulary and giving you a huge advantage when it comes to accurately constructing German sentences.
