In German, dann is a common word that can be used in many different contexts. One of the most common uses is to indicate a temporal sequence of events. For example, if someone says 'Ich gehe einkaufen, dann gehe ich nach Hause,' it means 'I am going shopping, then I am going home.' In this case, dann is used to show that the speaker will do one thing after another.

Another way that dann can be used is to express a logical consequence. For instance, if someone says 'Wenn es regnet, dann bleibe ich zu Hause,' it means 'If it rains, then I will stay at home.' Here, dann indicates that staying at home is the logical consequence of the rain.

Finally, dann can also be used as a filler word in conversation. In this context, it doesn't have any specific meaning but serves to connect sentences and keep the conversation flowing smoothly. For example, someone might say 'Ich war gestern im Kino. Dann bin ich noch etwas trinken gegangen.' In this case, dann doesn't add any new information but simply connects the two sentences.
