Sentence info.

The German sentence “Woher kommst du?” translates to “Where are you from?” in English. It is a common way to ask someone about their origin or hometown. Here’s an explanation of how the sentence is constructed:

– “Woher” means “from where” and is a combination of “wo” (where) and the directional particle “her” (from). It asks about the origin of something or someone.
– “kommst” is the second-person singular present tense form of the verb “kommen,” which means “to come.” It addresses the person you are speaking to directly.
– “du” is the pronoun for the second person singular, “you.”

To remember this phrase, you can break it down into its individual components:

1. **Wo** for the location (where).
2. Add **her** to indicate direction (from where).
3. Use the appropriate form of “kommen” (to come) that matches the subject “du” (**kommst**).
4. Finish with the pronoun **du** (you).

By associating the direction (her) with origin questions and remembering the verb-conjugation pattern, you can recall the phrase more easily.

Here are alternative ways to ask “Where are you from?” in German:

– “Aus welchem Land kommst du?” – “From which country are you from?”
– “Wo kommst du her?” – Literally “Where do you come from?”
– “Wo bist du geboren?” – “Where were you born?”
– “Wo haben Sie Ihren Ursprung?” – A formal way of saying “Where is your origin?” using the formal “Sie”
– “Wo ist deine Heimat?” – “Where is your home?” or “What’s your homeland?”
– “Welcher Stadt kommst du?” can also be used informally but it is grammatically incorrect. The correct way would be “Aus welcher Stadt kommst du?” which means “From which city are you from?”

A suitable response to “Woher kommst du?” if you wanted to say “I’m from Berlin,” would be:

“Ich komme aus Berlin.”
