About This Class

Welcome to the first of my German cases classes!

In this class we will go back to basics and look at what subjects and direct & indirect objects are, and when to use the possessive case, otherwise known as the nominative, accusative, dative and genitive case.

This class requires some knowledge of German. 

If you have only just started to learn German, then this course may not be for you, but save it for later. Then, as soon as you are ready to learn about the cases in German, you can watch the videos to help you along.

If you are an intermediate student, then this class is for you.
Advanced German learners might also find it useful just to go back to the basics of the cases, as in textbooks they are often explained in bits and pieces, rather than all together.

In this class you will learn what the nominative case is and which articles (direct & indirect) to use. 
Then we'll look at the accusative case and any possible changes you may need to do to the articles.
That will be followed by the dative and genitive cases, and a worksheet for you to practise everything on your own.

At the end of the class you will have a better understanding of the German cases, which will equip you for another class about prepositions.

This helped me understand the cases better than a whole semester in school, so thank you so much! The class is very well-structured and easy to follow and understand. As a person who struggles with German, this has been of great help and I will definitely take all the other classes here! :)
Wonderful teacher and very helpful classes.
