Die, Der, Das

I know Die is feminine, Das is neutral and Der is masculine, but how do you determine which goes to which word?

you have to memorise it. learn the nouns together with the article as one unity , cause there is no rule you could apply.

ps. the article is usually not capitalized only the noun.


Unfortunately this can be quite random and requires some effort to learn the genders of each word. This video has some helpful tips on German grammatical gender. https://youtu.be/P_TXfXvR_Rs
