Word Order and Dative Case

So I've been learning german for almost 9 months now and I have started having a lot more trouble than usual, word order is starting to feel jumbled and I never know when to use each form of 'the' and everything is starting to get way too confusing, can anyone give me some advice on how to fix this issue/get me to understand these rules and such? Thank You.

find some german video and listen to people talking. dailymotion is a european based utube. use the search terms staffel and deutsch. many german dubbed US shows can be found. ZDF is the german tv giant. you can find videos on their website. there must be german language podcasts on a subject you know and like - history, cooking, tennis. just listen for awhile. it's like music, there's a beat, a tempo, to language. let the learning come through your ears for a bit. good luck
