Another totally genitive free zone
Not only that, but it included a load of stuff that we aren't supposed to have covered yet. Past and future tenses, passive, relative clauses.
Just sympathizing...I also completely failed to spot any genitive adjectives in the Adjectives: Genitive unit. Odd.
it's nice to be learning the composite past tense...it would be even nicer if there was some kind of explanation of it before it was thrown at me...
I've read that the genitive case is slowly disappearing from German, so does this mean the genitive is officially dead?
Using the genitive is not that difficult but is a good way to impress native German speakers. I think this is because so many less educated people use von + dative and use the dative after genitive pronouns all the time so to a German ear use of genitive implies good use of German.
But IMO it is much easier to use the genitive than have to remember which verbs take a dative object or accusative vs dative reflexive pronoun
This skill at the moment has nothing to do with genitive adjectives, but it was much more interesting for it! I saw some passive voice, relative clauses, lots of past participles, and some past participles used as adjectives. Was much fun, I'm sure genitive adjectives would have been much more boring.
They should just rename it 'Lots of interesting grammar stuff you haven't heard of yet!'
