Important spelling rules in German

  • ALL nouns are written with a capital first letter! -e.g. Hallo!
  • Capitals also signal the start of a new sentence, that is why we write “Danke” with a capital first letter when it stands alone.
  • In terms of “Guten Abend” we write “Guten” with a capital first letter because it is at the beginning of the sentence and “Abend” with a capital first letter because it is a noun (der Abend)
