**Tips to remember the German word ‘du lässt’:**

1. Associate ‘lässt’ with the English word ‘last’; when you let something happen, you could think of it as the ‘last’ decree or decision you make—hence, ‘du lässt’.
2. Link ‘lässt’ to its English equivalent ‘let’ by remembering ‘let’ has a short, crisp sound, much like the sharp double ‘s’ in ‘lässt’.
3. Think of ‘lassen’ (the infinitive of ‘lässt’) as ‘to let’, which sounds a bit like ‘lesson’. To remember ‘du lässt’, think “You (du) teach (lässt) a lesson (to let something happen).”

The verb ‘lassen’ means ‘to let’ or ‘to allow’. In German, verbs are conjugated to correspond with the subject of the sentence. ‘Du lässt’ is the second person singular present tense form of ‘lassen’, so it directly translates to ‘you let’ or ‘you allow’.
