Zweite und dritte Person im gleichen Satz - wonach richtet sich das Verb?

I am quite new to the German language. I'd like to know which of the following is correct:

  1. Paula und ich sind im Café.
  2. Paula und ich bin im Café.

To me, it seems that #1 should be correct. Is my understanding correct or not?


1 Answer 1


You are right. #1 is correct.
In case of just one single person you use bin. E.g. "Ich bin im Cafe"
If there are 2 or more persons as in your case, you use sind.
