More questions

Wann is a useful word. You can answer by saying jetzt, heute, Morgen or any other word that tells then when you are doing something. If you are asked wie oft, then if you do things on a regular basis you can answer with words like jeden Tag, dreimal pro Woche or einmal in der Woche.

Wann ist das passiert means when did it happen so answers could include am Morgen or am Abend. The answer could be gestern or vorgestern or even letztes Jahr. Wann passiert das means when is it going to happen. Notice that in the past tense the verb passieren takes sein if it means ‘happen’. Passieren can also mean to pass in which case it doesn’t take sein.

Bis bald
