3 © Boardworks Ltd of 8 What are separable verbs? Some German verbs have two parts: a root and a separable prefix. These are called separable verbs because the parts of the verb separate when you use it in a sentence. abfahren:Der Zug fährt um 9 ab. The train leaves at 9. Der Bus kommt um 10 an. The bus arrives at 10. ankommen: These are the prefixes. Although the infinitive form of the verb to arrive is ankommen, when you use the verb in a sentence, the prefix goes to the end of the sentence.
