Since you're profile says your in Germany, and since "t" is pronounced "teh" in German, I'm going to assume you're talking about the て-form. Here are some pages that should make everything clear:

It would help if you asked a question that made sense. What do you want to know?

I've been down this road before, Tokyo. Please venture no further. It's really, really not worth your time. My advice to you is to focus on your studies.

The て form is made by taking the dictionary form (う) and making changes to it like so:

If the dictionary form is a GODAN verb ending with:

う or る or つ, then change it to って
む or ぶ or ぬ then to んで
く to いて
ぐ to いで
す to して

Nu doesn't happen in many verbs.

Sorry, forgot to add, for ICHIDAN verbs, just take away the る and add て

It's not a language issue. It's a question issue.

Did you know what "the T-form" is? I didn't.
