When do you use "mir" and "mich"?

To be able to fully understand the difference between these two pronouns, you should first familiarise yourself with the rules on German cases and German pronouns. Then you will understand that "mich" is the Accusative form of "ich", whereas "mir" is the Dative pronoun of "ich. Let's look at some examples, shall we?

Another, if not the most common example, of a dative only combination of verb and adjective that uses "mir" is "wie gehts dir?", which you answer with "Mir gehts...". Are you feeling better about "mir" and "mich" now?
