German Dative Case
I can't seem to pass the 1st lesson in the Dative case in German. Does anyone have an Idea of how to pass this?
In the dative case:
der becomes dem; die (singular) becomes der; das becomes dem; die (plural) becomes den
the same endings apply to the indefinite article:
ein becomes einem; eine becomes einer; ein (neuter) becomes einem; eine (plural) becomes einen
"danke" is used in the dative case if you are thanking someone. You can look at it like the word thanks is implying that you are giving thanks to someone. So "I thank you" is like saying "I give thanks to you". The "to" makes it a dative case. Ich danke dir.
