German Case System

One of the most difficult things about the German language is the case system. There are four cases (nominative, accusative, dative and genitive) and four article categories (masculine, feminine, neuter, and plural). Each of these are used in unique circumstances and have their own format that needs to be followed in order to avoid misunderstandings. With the posts on this page, you will be able to master der, die, and das and so much more!
