practice exercises on this page are primarily compiled from
other websites ==> please use the Contact/Feedback
link in the navigation bar on the left to let me know if any
of the links stops working, so I can update or delete it! Some
of the exercises below are rather detailed, whereas this page
is just designed to provide a general overview of case ==>
don't be too concerned if something seems very unfamiliar
to you, but do ask your instructor about it.
particular, a number of the exercises below deal with prepositions
and strong/verb/weak verb pairs. These will be explained
in more detail on the Prepositions
page on this site, but you can get a good preliminary review
of prepositions by trying these exercises!

case and build a basic understanding its use with verbs
that take both direct (accusative) and indirect (dative)
mit Genitiv Educational infotainment :) Practice
the Genitive by translating titles of some popular movies.
The second of these asks you to translate into German and
is quite difficult; use the "Nächster richtiger Buchstabe"
button if you're stuck on e.g. an adjective ending.
