"In the store"
Translation:In dem Laden
Duolingo has been marking my "im" and "am" wrong when it wanted "in dem" or "an dem" respectively, or vice versa.
Why is this Dative? Why not just In Der Laden? Something to do with indirect object? I'm on the brink of a Ulrika Moment, if someone could just explain this to me as thoroughly and Concisely as possible that would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
in is a two way preposition sometimes takes dative when there's location as in this sentence or as well acussative when there's movement or direction
Wir gehen ins(in+das)Kino (Acussative)
Wir sind im (in+dem)Kino (Dative)
Hope that helps
