Höflichkeitsform Sie (polite form Sie)

In German, you use Sie (with a capital s!) to address people in a polite way. It is used for talking to one or more than one person, corresponding to the Spanish usted/ustedes and the French vous. In general, if you don’t know someone, you should address them using Sie unless you are talking to children. But this also depends on the context. If it’s less formal, like at a party or sports club, people usually use du. Younger people, around the age of 27 (give or take a few years), also tend to use du with others their own age.

If not, we highly recommend you do. This course will help lay a solid foundation for your German, but you’ll really only reach your full potential by taking additional lessons with a teacher. And these days, that’s easier than ever. You don’t have to be to living in Germany or pay loads of money. On platforms like italki, you can choose from over 300 native German speakers with plenty of teaching experience. Having a teacher is so important because you need to practice speaking the language you’re learning. If you have German speaking friends, you can practice with them of course but if you’re a beginner, you’ll often find yourself switching to English. A teacher however, will always encourage you to speak German and also correct your mistakes. Plus, your teacher can tailor your lessons to your specific needs. So what are you waiting for? Take your German to the next level and book a trial lesson!
