A preposition expresses and forms a relation to an other word.
There are different types of preposition in the German language.
Das Haus steht neben der Kirche. - The house stands next to the church (locative)
Vor dem Spiel gehen wir etwas essen. - Before the game we are going to eat something (temporal)
Mit meiner besten Freundin habe ich Spaß. - I have fun with my best friend (modal)
Trotz des Regens habe ich gute Laune. - Despite the rain I am in a good mood (causal)
Some prepositions in the German language require one of the four German cases. Other prepositions can come along in two cases (two-way-prepositions)
Ich brauche Zucker für den Kaffee. - I need sugar for the coffee (accusative)
Er kommt aus der Schule. - He comes from school (dative)
Während des Morgens ist es kalt. - It's cold during the morning. (genitive)
Prepositions are sometimes directly set with a verb. As always the prepositional object's case depent on the preposition itself.
Denkst du an sie? - Are you thinking of her? (An wen/was denkst du?)
Ich arbeite an der Hausarbeit. - I'm working on the assignment (An wem arbeite ich?)

Hello =) My name is Karolin and I have been living in Chile for more than 2 years now. I've been teaching via Skype for quite some time and... I've found that this kind of work is fun. That's why I would like to expand my circle of students. Both in English and in German, I teach classes for beginners and advanced students. I speak Spanish fluently, but I do not want to cheat anyone, so I note here that I speak the spanish from Chile. I learned and teach the spanish from Spain and I can explain the differences if you're interested, but that is why I only teach spanish for beginners. If you'd like to get to know me and my teaching methods, just contact me and we will do a free trial lesson. See you soon! Read more
