Usually "essen" is used for humans and "fressen" for animals. If you want to emphasize that a human eats like a pig or that an animal has good manners you can use the words differently.
I do not really get it, though. Humans are biologically defined as animals. This is scientifically true.
accusative is the case of the direct object. i.e.THE MOUSE EATS WHAT = accusative, therefore DEN KAESE.
Accusative is a direct object i.e. something that directly receives the action of a verb. Example: the apple in "I am eating the apple." (in something like "I drove by the lake" lake is an indirect object)
I have practiced animals 1 every day and it still is displaying in my "words" that I haven't practiced "Maus" in 5 days. How do I report this bug? When I click "report" in a question related to this word, the three options listed are not applicable.
thanks for the discussions below I get the difference between "isst" and "frisst"
Why is it den and not der Kase ? It is accusative only if the subject is masculine. It is not the case with Maus which is feminine (Die Maus)
No you have got it the wrong way around. It's not subject, it's the object in the sentence, which in this case is the masculine word Käse.
Whereas 'cheese' (with no article) is generic -- any cheese, all cheese. "Cheese is delicious," as opposed to "The cheese we got yesterday (specific cheese) is delicious."
Why isn't "the mouse eats the cheese" accepted? I know this way is accepted other places, but here it gave me a wrong. Any rules?
Die der das is confusing, is there any general rule. Like with feminine we should use die etc ?
Use der with grammatically masculine words, die with grammatically feminine words, das with grammatically neuter words.
But that just shifts the problem -- the grammatical gender of a word is something that you simply have to learn. There isn't really any logic as to why (say) Messer (knife) is neuter, Gabel (fork) is feminine, and Löffel (spoon) is masculine.
I recommend learning nouns together with their article, e.g. don't learn "Löffel = spoon" but instead "der Löffel = the spoon" so that you will know that Löffel is masculine.
a rat and a mouse are diffrent although related and get conifused alot
I didn't use the wrong word, I forgot to use the definite article, so it's not the wrong word but a particular word.
I don't think so. R and L have different sounds as do the e and i . I would try to repeat the sounds the lesson makes.
