Explainations of Cases
I noticed that explanations for the various cases has been taken down. This means that when tackling a lesson like the genitive case I had no idea what I was meant to be doing.
As it is I looked on google and found a good explanation on another site... but shouldn't that really be on here?
I remember when I first started using this site (about a year ago) the lessons for the cases had a short paragraph about when the case would be used and a table with the various endings. Could this be brought back?
I don't remember seeing one for the genitive cases earlier either. It's direly needed.
i'm german, and maybe this doesn't help you much but here's how i learned the four cases by heart:
- Der Berg lockte viele Besucher an. (die Blume / das Haus)
- Der Gipfel des Berges stand oft in Wolken. (der Blume / des Hauses)
- Wir näherten uns dem Berg. (der Blume / dem Haus)
- Wir bestiegen den Berg. (die Blume / das Haus)
It's like a little story, easy to keep in mind. Just replace "der Berg" with any other noun. Even if the meaning makes no sense the cases will be right. I added a female and neuter noun in brackets.
Just realised how complicated German is, sorry guys! :)
