In German, it is a little different. When you look up a word in a dictionary,you will see the plural in brackets next to the word, so you know what todo. For example, if you look up the word for 'dog' you will find 'der Hund (-e)'.

The "-e" in brackets means that you add an "e" to the word Hund if you want to say you have more than one dog.

For Example: 'I have two dogs' = 'Ich habe zwei Hunde'.

There are other plurals in German. Look at the list below. Make sure you know what to do when you use a dictionary:
