‘Ich bin’ or ‘ich habe’ – normally, when you need to decide whether to use ‘sein’ or ‘haben’ it’s because you are writing a sentence in the perfect tense and need to decide whether the verb takes ‘sein’ instead of ‘haben’.
This blog post, however, talks about something easier!
It’s about the different ways to say that you’re hungry, thirsty, scared, worried or happy, by using either ‘haben & noun’ or ‘sein & adjective’.
I’m afraid/ scared
With the ‘haben & noun’ sentences you add ‘groß’ (& appropriate ending), and with the ‘sein & adjective’ you add ‘sehr’.
With the ‘haben & noun’ sentences you add ‘kein’ (& appropriate ending), and with the ‘sein & adjevtive’ you add ‘nicht’.
