Usage notes[edit]

  • In official parlance, the plural Studenten is increasingly replaced with Studierende for gender-neutrality; see the latter entry.
  • The German word is never used instead of Schüler (pupil). Even with adult learners, it is unusual for students in instutions below the level of Hochschule.
