So what's the difference between "den" and "dem"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hohenems

The case. der = nominative, den = accusative, des = genitive, dem = dative

I don't get much sense from this sentence, it has some sort of special meaning having the accusative form in "dem Mann"?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Hohenems

dem Mann = dative case

"mit" requires dative
