point upwards thoughtful_transparent

If you've ever done a bit of Latin, you will have come across the idea of case. If not - well, as English doesn't really have case in any meaningful sense any more, this will be something new to you! In German nouns can be one of four cases depending on how they are used in a sentence. This doesn't change the noun (there is an exception, but we'll cover this) but does change the word for the or a. Pronouns (he, she, it, etc) are affected by case. That's enough confusion for now - the resources  below will tell you all you need to know.
