In the following you fill find information about the formation and the usage of the past participle.
There are three different ways to form the past participle of a verb.
A regular weak verb doesn't change its word stem in the past participle. It is formed as follows: ge + stem + -t . The ending -t widens to -et in verbs whose stem ends in -d, -t and -n.
|weak verb||past participle|
The verbs end in -ieren are also weak verbs. They don't have a ge- prefix in their past participle form.
|weak verb||past participle|
If you don't remember the meaning of these verbs, please click on separable and inseparable verbs in order to receive more information.
You use the past participle for the passive voice, the compound tenses, as attributive adjective or instead of a subset where one action leads the other.

Hello everyone and a big warm welcome to all the fellow language learners,My name is Katerina, I’m a native Russian speaker and a foreign... language teacher from St Petersburg, Russia. I’ve always been addicted to learning foreign languages, be it English, German, Spanish, Turkish or Arabic, so turning my passion into my job was just a matter of time. I have a Master’s degree in linguistics which taught me to understand the way the mechanism of a language works and thus to help my students see the logics behind the grammar rules. Being a constant language learner enables me to see the process from both sides and to predict the difficulties my students might face. The fact that I’m not a native speaker of English or German means I’ve been through exactly the same language-learning journey you’re about to take, and thanks to my personal experience as a student, I can make this road smooth for you.I've had students of all ages, from pre-school kids to senior generation, and I feel comfortable working with both beginners and those who are eager to take their learning process to a new level. In my classes I encourage you to talk in the language we’re studying as much as possible, putting every single bit of knowledge into practice right away. If you’re a Russian-learner, I’d be glad to prove it to you that you can absolutely nail my mother-tongue - and yes, you’ll be able to make a small talk in Russian by the end of the first class even if you’re an absolute beginner! We’ll be focusing on the topics that are most relevant to your goals, while discovering the language and getting to know more about the culture of people who speak it.I offer a short free trial class, for us to give each other a smile and discuss our teaching pattern, in order to ajust it to your goals and make our lessons the bee's knees :) See you soon!
