Accusative Prepositions

    In this week’s episode of 3 Minuten Deutsch I showed a few examples of how to use the accusative prepositions in German. You can watch the video below or check out the slides below the video. If you keep on scrolling, you can read more about each of the prepositions.

    Now that you have seen how to use each of these prepositions, let’s see if you can complete the following task. See if you can figure out which prepositions should go in the blanks below. Some may have more than one answer, but the answer key at the end of this blog post shows what I had in mind when I wrote the sentences.

    1. Was _________ einen Hund hast du zu Hause?

    2. Der Bauarbeiter lehnt die Leiter _________ die Wand.

    3. Die Kinder rennen _________ den Gang.

    4. Der Hund schläft _________ 3 Uhr.

    5. Calvin bleibt _________ Mitternacht wach.

    6. _________ Haare sehe ich komisch aus.
