Die Präpositionen

There are so many similarities between German and English but there are some differences, and I am going to pick on die Präpositionen.
One of the differences is that prepositions can take the dative or they can take the accusative and some take both. The dative answers the question where, and indicates position e.g. in der Schule means in school. If you want to use in to mean into or to then the article that follows in is accusative. Wie komme ich in die Innenstadt means how do I get to the centre of the city? So Er geht in die Küche means he goes into the kitchen. Er ist in der Küche means that he is already there and answers the question where.

Bis bald
