What does "wäre" mean and how do you use it in German?

what-does-waere-mean-how-use-German

This episode will take the fear out of using wäre in German.

All it means is "would be," but would be has nothing to do with reality. It actually has to do with things which are unreal.

Something that isn't true now, but would be nice or would be nuts or would be fantastic.

This grammar topic is known as the "Konjunktiv II." We'll use only the present tense today.

If this is brand new for you, it's best to take it one step at a time. The first step are the very straight-forward sentences (or "simple sentences") in this episode.



Join us to Practice German Weekly With Nicole.

This week we're practicing wäre!

Welch eine Überraschung!

What a surprise!
