German Grammar: Possessivartikel: mein/meine
Possessive article: my

Let me introduce you to the possessive articles!
Are they like jealous partners?
Oh, please! They are used to express possession. In other words, to say that there is a relationship of belonging:
mein Vater
my father
meine Mutter
my mother
mein Kind
my child
meine Kinder
my children
It's just like indefinite articles, but with an "m" at the front!
Exactly!
Tip:
Use the words ein or mein to remember that «ei» in German is always pronounced like the English pronoun "I".
And... «ie» is pronounced like "pea".
We'll introduce you to the other possessive articles later :)
