Advanced Description

Immer is a versatile word that can be used in many different contexts. For example, you might say 'Ich trinke immer Kaffee zum Frühstück' which means 'I always drink coffee for breakfast'. In this case, immer emphasizes the fact that drinking coffee is a regular and consistent part of the speaker's morning routine.

Another common use of immer is to express frustration or annoyance. For instance, if someone keeps interrupting you while you're trying to work, you might say 'Kannst du nicht einmal still sein? Ich muss immer konzentriert arbeiten!' which means 'Can't you be quiet for once? I always have to work with concentration!'. Here, immer emphasizes the speaker's exasperation with the constant interruptions.

Finally, immer can also be used in more poetic or literary contexts. For example, the famous German poet Rainer Maria Rilke wrote a line that translates to 'immer wieder kehrt das Leid zurück' which means 'the pain always returns again and again'. In this case, immer conveys a sense of inevitability and persistence.
