How do you say “May I come in ?” in German ?

“Dürfen” refers to may/allow. It is used in the way we ask our mom “may I go to my friend’s house?” or questions like these. Such words are mainly used when we ask something or to give it a specific word, we may say when ask for a permission.

“Dürfen” is a modal verb. The sentence framing is the same as that of other modal verbs.

Zum beispiel:

May I come in?- Darf Ich herein kommen?

May I buy this?- Darf Ich dass kaufen?
