Videos > An Introduction to the Dative Case
The dative case is often the third case you will learn when you begin studying Latin. While the nominative case is used for the verb's subject and the accusative case for the verb's direct object, the dative case is often used as the verb's indirect object.

In addition, we will also look at instances where the dative is translated with "for", the so called dative of reference.
