Remembering an, a, one.

Everyone knows what ein is right? What about eine, einem, einer, and so on. But can you remember which one's go with which? I can't, that's for sure.

<pre>Now, there are other examples, like esse, essen, isst, but I want to know something: how do I (or other people who would like to know) find out a way to remember which goes with which? I don't want specifics, but a strategy would really help. Danke! </pre>

Oh, and if you are responding, you can call me Jameson. :p

I really struggled with this in the beggining, and what really helped me was creating a chart, and filling in Nominative, Akkusative, Dative, in rows and then Male, Female, Neuter across the tops and then filling in the boxes, and then immedietly after write practice sentences. I didn't focus a ton on if the sentence structure was correct, but really focused on using the right article, ein, eine, einen, ect. And reading! by seeing it used properly I was able to start to get an idea of how to use them.

I hope this helps! But seriously copying charts and actually hand writing them out, then writing sentences helped a ton.

Hey! I am German and when i went to elementary school, I struggled with that aswell haha, so this might help with knowing when to use which "Fall" Words that indicate Akkusativ (eine, einen, ein) are: durch, für, ohne, um Dativ (einem, einer, ein) : mit, nach, bei, von, zu Dativ or Akkusativ: in, über, vor, zwischen, neben,...
