A question about the verb 'spielen'.


In my course it says 'spielen' means 'to play'.

What do they mean by play?

Do you use the word to mean play games, to play an instrument, to play as in a concert (where is the group playing) etc.

Can you please show me some simple sentences using spielen, please. Thank you.
