There are some VERBS that require DATIVE case. And in this lesson you have the chance to practice the most important ones for A1 along with Personal Pronouns in accusative & dative. The first exercise is exclusively about A1 dative verbs, while the second exercise also requires the knowledge of personal pronouns in accusative and dative. Therefore this lesson is based on our videos "Verben Mit Dativ A1" , "German Personal Pronouns in Dative" and "German Personal Pronouns in Akkusativ". In case you haven't learnt or struggle with either one of these topics we recommend to watch the applicable video before you start this exercise.

The verbs STELLEN | LEGEN | STEHEN | LIEGEN cause a lot of confusion and are often used the wrong way. So we decided to create a lesson that gives you the chance to practice those four verbs and the prepositions that they come with.
In the first section of this practice video you will get a very brief review/explanation when to use which verb, followed by multiple-choice questions. You will not only have to choose the correct verb but also need to put it into the right form. The second part is about choosing the right preposition and case for each sentence. Like in section one you will get a short review/explanation when to use which case.

DASS is definitely one of the most important and most often used conjunctions in German language. In this lesson you will not only learn how to form a proper sentence with the conjunction DASS, but also when to use it. This video is intenionally keep very simple to make it easy for you to learn the basics about this conjunction without any unnecessary confusing knowledge that doesn't match your German level (A2).

Do you also have this Problem? When you see dates in German: Which ending do you have to use? -te / -ten / -ter??? Which one is correct? Dont't worry... 😉 In this video you will learn how to say German dates correctly and also understand why there are those endings. Of course you can always memorize these few endings and in the beginning it's maybe also the better choice. But as an intermediate student you should try to understand the endings: why they are there and when you have to use which. More about this topic in the bonus tip of this video here.

In this video you will learn all German reflexive verbs you need to know for A1 level. Even though the reflexive verbs are usually taught in A2 level in most German textbooks; they still are used also on A1 level. Therefore it's worth learning those verbs and try to understand their concept already from the beginning. They are common used verbs and sometimes have different meanings. But more about those exceptions in this video's bonus tip. 😉
WEIL is one of the most important conjunctions in German language. Therefore this lesson has the focus on this important word! At first you will learn different options to compose a sentence with "weil" . By using example senctences I will explain some fundamental but really important grammar rules not only "weil" but subordinate clauses in general.

Hallo liebe Leute, after this video you will finally... and hopefully... understand when to use "mich" and when "dir" when using German reflexive verbs. There are not too many situations when you have to use the dative reflexive pronoun (mir, dir), so in most cases the reflexive pronoun will be accusative (mich, dich).
At the end in the 2nd bonus tip I talked about reflexive verbs with prepositions. I am probably not clear enough about what I wanted to say, but its just about the reflexive pronoun, not about the preposition the verb comes with. So for example: sich bedanken bei (+ Dativ) Ich bedanke MICH bei MEINEM Onkel. so the object after the preposition is always in dative case because of the preposition "bei". But what I want to tell you in my bonus tip is, that the reflexive pronoun stand in AKKUSATIV. Hope this is clear now. 😉
