So here we are. Ich lerne gern Deutsch. Lernen Sie auch Deutsch? For German experts, I add in each post simple sentences with English translations of what I want to express. Please feel free to comment or correct. Thank you!

Learning German Cases: "Nominatve, Accusative, Dative"

My German is currently at A1.2 level and I am currently in the third case: the dative case. I've been though with the nominative and accusative cases and these two were not complicated as long as the learner knows the gender of the noun.

Below is a very interesting video and it is a good thing to have some ideas about these cases. Although I have read mixed reactions to this video, I still find it very useful and fun to watch.

"Der Hund beißt den Mann" and "Den Mann beißt der Hund" both mean the same thing: (The dog bites the man.)


Below is the summary of the usage of articles in four german cases:

Learn Vehicle Words in German: Vocabulary

I have learn German Vegetables here, "Das Gemüse" and I have also learned all the fruits introduced here, naturally in German. It's quite limited in volume but it's a good thing too: overflowing information will discourage the brain! This time is to learn about vehicles, and their German names! Learn with me, yes,learn with Webbielady.

The video has images, pronunciation, article that goes with the noun, and short test at the end of the video to test the learned vocabulary words. Feel free to come back here from time to time and learn with me. I actually reviewed also what I learned in the past and this is the best way to retain the knowledge and make it solid!I have to admit the gender articles are quite a challenge.

Ich habe ein altes Fahrrad. (I have an old bike.)

Learn Vegetables in German: "Das Gemüse"

I found this learning material from youtube to be very useful and helpful. It has various aids for the learner: good quality video, very good images, sound and pronounciation and at the end, the learner will be tested if he/she remembers the words. It is very effective for me.

I hope the video will have the same useful effect on you. It's really fun to know that some vegetables are called so strangely like the carrot, which is called "die Möhre". I could never have imagined that "Möhre" is the word for carrot. Some are not that strange such as spinach which "Spinat" but still majority of them are really new tome.

"Isst du gern Kartoffeln?" (Do you eat potatoes?)

"Ja ich finde die gekochte Kartoffeln lecker...sehr lecker!" (Yes, I find the cooked potatoes yummy...really yummy!)
