Der Die and Das?

When would one use Der Die or Das? thanks for answers in advance!

Unfortunately, you will have to learn the articles with the nouns, there's no other way, there are some shortcuts like nouns ending in -tion or -ung being female and the diminutive -chen being neutral, but most don't fit into any kind of category and you just have to learn them...


Der, Die and Das are the determiners of German nouns, with each one representing a particular gender: der = male; die = female; das = neuter
