Into the Past: From the Present to the Perfect Tense

Question 1 of 5
Constructing the Perfect Tense in German, Part 1

To construct the perfect tense in German, you need to use two verbs together in one sentence: an auxiliary verb and a past participle.


For example, in English, you could say: "I have cooked noodles."


The word "have" is the auxiliary verb in this sentence. 

The word "cooked" is the past participle.


In German, this sentence would be:

Ich habe Nudeln gekocht. 

Notice that in German the past participle, "gekocht", is placed at the end of the sentence.
