Was doing a revision on “Going Skiing”
Noticed that with “neben” goes “dem”
Knew it had something to do with the cases. Made a comment this wekk on Dative in the forum.
Having listened to a podcast on Coffee Break made the connection with neben and dative case.
I feel that is why I use different resources, some paid many free.
My husband wants to do the Mahler Hike in Germany near Dresden. Due to Duolingo realized that Maler is painter and could make the connection. Thrills me when I have these aha moments and I can see dots gradually connecting.
I know that many are scathing about Duolingo, but it does have its good points.
