Modal verbs! How much do you know about them?
You probably remember a few things things:
The slides give you a quick introduction again, in case you’ve forgotten how to conjugate them.
Then there is also mögen & möchten, which are used like modal verbs but also often used without a second verb. But mögen (to like), which gets conjugated like a modal verb, and möchten (conditional of mögen, would like) hardly ever have the second verb.
For example, if we want to say that we like playing tennis, we’d rather say ‘Ich spiele gerne Tennis’ and not ‘Ich mag Tennis spielen’. However, we might say ‘Ich mag Tennis’, which tells you that I like tennis, but not whether I mean I like playing or watching it.
But in this blog post I want to get back to 4 of the 5 modal verbs mentioned above: können, müssen, wollen & dürfen.
Because in spoken German you sometimes hear them used without a second verb! And because you can’t always do that in English it makes those sentences difficult to translate.
Answer: ‘Du darfst’ is the brand name of calorie-reduced diet products.
