German Verbs - "haben" & "sein"
The ending for we, they and the formal you are all the same!
sein (to be) - This verb is a bit weird, like its equivalent in English. You just have to learn the different forms of the verb that are used according to whom you're talking about.
P.S. - The famous line from Shakespeare's play Hamlet, "To be or not to be, that is the question." - In German the actors say: "Sein oder nicht sein, das ist die Frage."
