Which case do I actually need?

All forms of Waiter do you already know, but do you also know which case to use in a certain sentence? Here you will find a small and hopefully helpful summary of the four German cases:

The waiter, the waiter: This is how the nominative works.

If you know a word, you already know its nominative: It is simply the basic form, so Waiter. The nominative plural of Waiter reads Waiter.
You use the nominative especially for that subject of a sentence. It can be the first word in a sentence or later - especially when you have questions.

The waiter is mostly ...
What's the name of "the waiter"? – "The waiter" called ...
For the waiter did Miss Black always interested.

The waiter, the waiter: The genitive explained

The genitive is usually the last case that German learners get to know. You can speak the language quite well without him. Because there are also native speakers who almost never use the genitive in spoken German. You actually need the case to say what a thing belongs to or who is the owner. In the spoken language, however, it also works great without the genitive: namely when you simply from the waiter and not of the waiter says.
Of course, the genitive is not entirely useless. In the written language, you should use the genitive rather than the alternative dative constructions. And of course your spoken German sounds a lot better if you use the right genitive.
You ask for a word in the genitive case with the question word whose. It sounds like this, for example:

Whose is that?
This is ... of the waiter

In German there are a few prepositions after which one Waiter always used in the genitive. For example: face of the waiter, instead of the waiter or because of the waiter. These prepositions are more likely to be read in texts. They are rare in everyday language.
Even the verbs that need a genitive, such as B. help yourself (= use), ... need (= need), take hold of (= get into his possession) is more likely to be found in written texts and not so often in everyday spoken language.

To the waiter, the waiters: Explanations on the dative

The dative - thus: the waiter - gives information about who the recipient or addressee of something is or what the goal of an action is. After this case you ask with the words whom or What. You should use the dative e.g. B. use after these verbs: bring, lend, offer, explain, recommend, give, write, wish, show, send, give ...
The dative is also used in connection with certain prepositions in German, for example: from the waiter, with the waiters, with the waiter.

The waiter, the waiter: Explanations on the accusative

The accusative - the waiter - is the form for the direct object, i.e. the object of doing. One asks for objects in the accusative with the question words whom or What.

Who or what am I ignoring?
I ignore the waiter.

The accusative is also used after certain prepositions:

I'm interested in the waiter.
I think about the waiter to.

These are not the only accusative prepositions, but a few examples are: through, against, without.
