When to use Akk, Nomi, Dativ or Genitiv? i always get messed up when it come to this. My teacher said that I should base on the Verb to know which one you should use. But there are verbs that both use in Akk and Dativ. Not to mention when they are in the same sentence. I feel confused all the time. And it come to Welch-, Adjektivendungen, i truely come lost. Is there any way to fix this or to know when i should Akk or Dativ? Danke sehr!

If you've learnt some English grammar, Akkusativ is the direct object, and Dativ is the indirect object. Nominativ is the subject. "I told her a story" = [Nom] [verb] [Dat] [Akk]. That should solve most of the problem, although I can't guarantee that German verbs work the same way as English verbs. ;)
