Anyways...i need to learn how to make perfekt with verbs Haben und sein...

u probably mean you need to be able to do this:
I habe [.....]
Ich bin [.....]

its basicly saying that you have done something
example: ich habe gegessen

solved your question
???

I think it goes like this. It's been like 6 months since we did this stuff in meine Deutche Klasse.


For sein, the past tense conjugation would be:

Ich war
Du warst
er/sie/es war
Wir waren
Sie waren


For haben, it'd be:
Ich hatte
Du hattest
er/sie/es hatte
Wir hatten
Sie hatten


Someone correct me if I'm wrong.
#14
^thanks man...if i pass the damn subject....you get a respect sig from me

EDITh yeah i did this same thing with Latin...well only I got two hours of sleep

EDIT2:FaF seems to me you've kinda missed Ihr...but I'd guess it's the same as Du since it's like that in present

Ihr hattet
Ihr wart


Should be pretty much like that. My teacher never made us use ihr, so I left it out.

You need serious help, so what is the best thing to do?

Ask the pit!

well look i can easily get to the pit which has a widespread variety of users,5% of them is sane and have vast knowledge in linguistics so...

and registering on a linguistic forum would be to much of a hassle and an utter waste of time so...yeah i come up with this...but for examples and dictionary...google translate!

May I ask why?

No idea. She never incorporated any usage of ihr into her lesson plans aside from maybe a week or two out of the whole school year.

Wrong

That's pluperfect, which is like "i had eaten' or 'I had played' etc etc

For perfect "I (have) eaten" or "I (have) gone)" it would be:
Ich habe gegessen
Ich bin gegangen

The majority of verbs use haben, but any verbs of motion (gehen, fahren, bleiben etc etc) use sein

if i remember correctly (and i should ive just done my big writing exam) Ich Bin is used when you are moving or going somewhere. Zum Beispiel, I went to the cinema, Ich bin in der Kino gegangen.

Ich habe is used for everything else. Zum Beispiel, I listened to music, Ich habe music gehort.

I hope thats right.
#25
Haben- Ich habe... gehabt.
Sein- Ich bin... gewesen.

There they are in perfekt.



Edit: I reread your post.

Sein is used when you are changing positions, like walking, going, etc.
Haben is used any other time.

Thats the imperfect tense.

I believe TS is looking for perfect tense

which is formed with *subject* *form of habe or sein* *details* *past participle (past participles are the ones which usually start with ge-)*

Ich habe
Du hast
er/sie/es hat
wir haben
ihr habt
Sie haben

Ich bin
Du bist
Er/sie/es ist
wir sind
ihr seid
Sie sind


I cant remember the exact rule on when to use habe or sein but a dumbed down version is use 'sein' when you're travelling somewhere

Ich habe tennis gespielt

Ich bin nach Spanien geflogen
