When it comes to learn the German Language, one of the biggest challenges I have faced, is the cases(nominative, accusative, dative, genitive). If none of the languages you speak have that characteristic, you will need to put an extra effort to understand and make use of the cases in your daily basis. Do not panic! They seem rather difficult to understand at first but the teacher will make sure they repeat enough times. My teachers made sure they would every class talk about this cases, review them and check if we knew the proper forms. It’s funny because at some point the content just stuck to you and you do not have to think about it anymore, you just know. In my online German classes we made use of a table, similar to this one to have it always at hand. The more you use it the less you will need to use it.
Every once in a while when I found myself in need of a further explanation I have actually made use of the Free Tutoring, which is offered by the school without a cost. At the moment is done online as all the courses. It was especially helpful for me to have another teacher explaining to me the cases. Each and every teacher has its own way of explaining and in this case two explanations are better than one. So no matter how much time you have you can just make use of this extra “tool” to improve your understanding of the cases.
Don’t forget to make use of the free exercises on DeutschAkademie website, there is a link for exercises just with the cases, that’s a good way to check how you are progressing.
