    It’s almost as illogical as Dutch, fortunately you can camouflage a lot of grammar while speaking German.

    I don’t understand the example “Ich wasche mir die Hände”. That is something you do to yourself, although “mir” is correct here.

    My German is pretty good, but those grammar rules are totally confusing. Luckily I can use the cases intuitively and they are correct most of the time. (Ik zit je een beetje te pesten, maar het klopt wel. Je hele jeugd lang voornamlijk Duitse tv kijken, heeft zo zijn nut gehad)
