point upwards thoughtful_transparent

In German a noun is one of three genders - masculine, feminine or neuter. We have gender to a certain extent in English: some nouns are identifiably masculine, eg boy, bull, some identifiably feminine, eg sister, ewe, but otherwise they are regarded as neuter. But in German a tree is masculine, a wall is feminine and a book is neuter. It's not worth worrying why this should be - you just need to learn the gender with the noun - der Baum, die Wand, das Buch. The resources  below will tell you all you need to know.
