Accusative Pronouns is the twenty-second (assuming left to right) skill in the German language tree. It contains three lessons that teach the accusative pronouns and a few other determiners.

Tips and NotesEdit

Accusative CaseEdit

Pronouns change when they shift case. The accusative case is the second case learned, after the nominative. Just to review, the accusative case is used with the direct object of the sentence.

Example: Ich esse einen Apfel. (I eat an apple).

Pronouns will also change in the accusative case.

Personal Pronouns in the Accusative CaseEdit

Nominative Accusative
ich (I) mich (me)
du (you) dich (you)
er (he); sie (she); es (it) ihn (him); sie (her); es (it)
wir (we) uns (us)
ihr (you guys) euch (you guys)
sie (they) sie (them)
Sie (you) Sie (you)

The demonstrative pronouns will change in the accusative in the exact same way as the definite article. Der will change to den.
