Leisure is the fifteenth skill in the language tree for German. It has five lessons and teaches a large number of verbs in the present tense in order to describe activities that you do in your spare time.

Grammar Notes[]

The vast majority of verbs in German are regular verbs; that means they all act the same way when you conjugate or use them. They all conjugate like this:

German pronoun Verb ending
ich -e
du -st
er/sie/es -t
Sie -en

So for example, the verb joggen "to jog" is regular, so it would look like this conjugated:

German pronoun joggen
ich jogge
du joggst
er/sie/es joggt
Sie joggen
