Tips to remember “kein, keine”:

1. Associate “kein” with “none” or “not a/nor any” for singular masculine or neuter nouns, and “keine” for singular feminine or plural nouns in German.

2. Picture “kein” like a key (similar in sound) that doesn’t open any doors (none) and “keine” as a key that opens “no” (none) boxes (‘ne’ at the end for boxes – imagine feminine nouns as boxes).


– “Kein” is used before singular masculine or neuter nouns, and corresponds to “not a” or “no” in English. Ex: “kein Mann” (no man), “kein Wasser” (no water).

– “Keine” is used before singular feminine and all plural nouns, also meaning “no” or “not any”. Ex: “keine Frau” (no woman), “keine Kinder” (no children).
