Accusative Case

Let's recap! The accusative case is the direct object of the sentence. i.e. the person/thing on the receiving end of the action (verb).


Here are some more examples:
Ich kaufe den Ring (I am buying the ring)
Er wirft den Ball (He throws the ball)

Ask yourself:
Who or what is affected by the verb?
Whoever/Whatever is in the accusative case.

The accusative case is also used after es gibt (there is/are).

e.g. In meiner Stadt gibt es einen Park, eine Kirche und ein Kino.
(In my town, there is a park, a church and a cinema).
