Suggestion; because cases are hard

This is just a suggestion. For me the cases are the hardest thing in German to understand, and I feel like the lessons involving it are a bit too brief. It would be wonderful if there were lots and lots more example sentences with each case pointed out, to study.

Some people like me are better at recognising patterns than reading, so tons of examples would work well.

Hi Jake,

I agree with you that German grammar is very difficult and Rocket does not cover it in a lot of depth and it is scattered throughout the lessons. I don't mean that in a critical way because I believe the RG approach of giving us just the basics and concentrating on vocabulary used in actual conversations is the way to go. However, there are times when you want to better understand the grammar and usage and for that I suggest you get a primer on German grammar or search for articles on the web. I've accumulated a collection of German grammar "cheat sheets" that I keep beside me when I study my lessons and have found that to be helpful.

I found some videos here which have been helpful.
