About the Author: jan

My name is Jan and I live in the south west of Germany. My profession is being a project manager at a company that creates digital media (first of all internet related things). This is my job since over a decade so I´m quite familiar with the web and its tools. Whereat today almost every school kid does. But that´s one of the main reasons why nowadays there are quasi no more limits in the internet and so it can be used for all imaginable types of things. For example learning languages! And that´s where we are at the moment. I first got in touch with Transparent Language when my family and I used to live in France a couple of years ago. I just had a break from work and by coincidence I produced some cultural videos in French. A few months later the whole blogging thing came up and I was lucky to be a part of it. So now my (second) job is to feed you with information, exercises, vocabulary, grammar and stories about Germany and German language. For being a passionate videographer I´m trying to do this more and more by videos. If you have any wishes or needs of topics that should be treated here, please don´t hesitate to contact me via a comment field. I´m open to your suggestions (as long as they are not too individual) and will try to satisfy your needs.


  1. peter:

    u made some mistakes bro

    stehe means stand not stay

    stay means bleibe

    Ich bleibe – I stay
    Du bleibst – you stay
    Er bleibt – he stays
    Sie bleibt – she stays
    Es bleibt – it stays
    Wir bleiben – we stay
    Ihr bleibt – you stay
    Sie bleiben – they stay

    and not ich lesen, without n:
    Ich lese – I read

    the rest is correct

  2. Meio-Ma:

    “Ich lesen”?

  3. Jupitar:

    Stehen= to stand
    Bleiben= to stay

    Don’t they? Although I suppose there is some relation between the two words.

  4. Corinna:

    As a native German speaker, I would say “Ich stehe” is translated to “I stand”, not “I stay”. That one would depend on the context.

  5. Steve K:

    Thanks, that was fun (and educational).

  6. Pius:

    Thank-you for helping me learn more of the German Language.

  7. Stefan:

    Actually, “I read” is “ich lese”, not “ich lesen”.

  8. jan:

    Thanks for your comments! When I wrote the article, I just thought about taking “stay” or “stand” as translation for “stehen”. So I asked and it convinced me to take “stay”. I guess it depends on the case, but mostly “stand” would be better. Nevertheless, the main purpose was do conjugate the German verb “stehen”, so I hope the mistake doesn´t bother you too much! Thanks everybody…
