Difference between prepositions in, bei, um, an

Probably there is a topic about this already, but I couldn't find it through the search engine.

  • um (accusative)
  • an, in (accusative/dative)
  • bei (dative)

I was wondering if there is a simpler rule to use them. A song would work too!

Not quite sure whether this is what you're looking for, but someone posted this awhile back: https://www.lsa.umich.edu/german/hmr/Grammatik/Praepositionen/Prepositions.html

Hey! I checked this website earlier but I was hoping someone had a better rule, other than just memorizing.

Thanks anyways. I'm very impressed by your flags and streak, btw!

Thanks. Remember, a little bit at a time adds up over a long period. Good luck with your language learning. :)

Thanks for the advice! It took me a long time to learn that. I would always stop studying after a month. Now I study less daily, but I keep up with it for longer. Consistency is the key.

Happy exploring/learning languages! :)
