I think this is a too broad topic for just one discussion, and I'm sure this is explained in the "Tips and Notes" to the German course.

Here's an excellent site with explanations. Canoo.net. http://www.canoo.net/services/OnlineGrammar/Wort/Nomen/Kasus/index.html?lang=en

You are welcome! :-) You might also search on google for "German cases duolingo". This will give you the following results (I'm giving only some of them): https://www.duolingo.com/comment/1583569/German-cases https://www.duolingo.com/comment/5862490/How-the-German-Cases-work-easy-explanation https://www.duolingo.com/comment/4157573/Can-anyone-explain-the-4-different-cases-used-in-German

As you can see, this is a topic that has been explained several times.

Unfortunately, the search within Duolingo does not work very well. But entering your search terms together with "Duolingo" in google leads you to the interesting threads. :-)

Actually there are quite some German language channels on YouTube with very good quality:

Learn German with Jenny, Learn German with Anja and Easy German, just to name tree. All made by Germans and all quality channels.

I've always had a bit of a trouble with too much text stuff, it tends to bore me, so complementing it with videos was always a priority for me.

Off topic but ... is that the Vasco da Gama bridge (apologize for using a separate post to ask)?

And back on topic (already typed this, but it seems to have gotten lost?). I'm still getting cases wrong all the time, I think it just takes lots of practice. "Übung macht den Meister" (practice makes the master), which is itself an example of using cases. I have more than two hundred pages of notes I've typed that I'm referring to ALL the time ... on some days (oh, those wonderful days), something 'clicks' and another piece of the German language suddenly seems to make sense - becomes "natural". So ... just hang in there, keep it up, and don't stop plugging! I expect after a few more years I'm going to be a LOT better than I am now - and you can too!

In a nutshell, one of the biggest headaches of the German language.

I'm sure this is explained in the "Tips and Notes" to the German course.

They actually are. It's not that bad on that front.
