An Introduction to Cases for A Level German
This resource explains, using English as a starting point,
what cases are and what changes occur in German for the
definite and indefinite article and personal pronouns.
This takes the learner step-by-step from simple sentences to more complex sentences. The relevant forms of the German definite and indefinite article and personal pronouns are given, together with a short translation exercise. An explanation is provided of the difference between transitive and intransitive verbs. Learners are also given a dictionary exercise to practise identifying this information and to help them to understand why it is important to know whether a verb is transitive or intransitive.
