I need example of sentences that use Nominative, Accusative, Dative, Genitive etc. Grammar for Dummies kinda :P

Wikipedia presents all the facts, but that's all it does. It doesn't aim to teach pedagogically like Duolingo does, it just informs you of facts. It would be AWESOME if Duolingo had a Grammar section (like having its own language section like French, German and Spanish does currently) that covers all the structural rules. :D

So, back on topic: Do you know of a good site that teaches these grammar rules in a pedagogical easy way? (Specifically covering Nom, Acc, Dat and Gen)

Thanks!

It's pretty easy, really.. I don't have a link, but I can throw down some example sentences for you. Nom: the subject of the sentence. John in "John eats the apple" Acc: the object of the sentence. the apple in "John eats the apple" Dat: is in an indirect object (Often in prepositional phrases, meaning after 'with' or 'at' or similar words) The apple in "He hit me with the apple" Gen: is just possessive, basically. That one is easy to grasp for an English speaker, because we inflect for possessives. my head in "The apple hit my head"
