Akkusativ explained! What is Accusative? What is actually the meaning of this German case called accusative? When do you have to use it? Was ist ein Akkusativobjekt? These are all questions which very often come up for beginner students who learn the basics of the German language. With this video I try to solve the mysterious German grammar problem once and for all and will explain you what accusative really is, the accusative meaning and teach you also the Akkusativobjekt.
Generally speaking accusative is very close to the English direct object. This German case is used after specific verbs and prepositions. Prepositions I will not touch in the video. Verbs are actually pretty easy explained. Just always use the accusative case if you don't know better. There are only a handful of verbs which require Nominative. For a little bit more you need to use Dative. For almost all the rest just use Accusative.
Another way to explain the German case Akkusativ: If you have a sentence with one object, almost every time this object needs to be in Akkusativ. So every sentence has a subject, which stand in Nominativ and if you have an additional person or thing in this sentence which would be the object, you need to use Akkusativ.
Viel Spass und bis bald
