comment Difference between “Kind”and “Jugend”
Correct, but "youth" can refer both to a person's age (="Jugend") and to a young person (="Jugendlicher"). It is relevant to point out that "Jugend" ONLY refers to the age. It does NOT mean "young person", the way "youth" does.

comment Most common Präteritum / Imperfekt forms in written German?
Maybe you can come up with your own ranking. Take each of the 100 3rd-person preterite forms, add the pronoun "er", throw each one ("er kam", "er ging", "er fand") at google, write down the number of search results, and rank accordingly.

comment Schreibst du einen Brief an deinen Vater?
@DenysS. Yes, this is the correct way to check. The questions "where to" (wohin) and, in this case, "to whom" ask about direction, which means the preposition requires accusative. If you ask "where", you ask about location, in which case the preposition requires dative.

comment What's the meaning of “schon”?
"Ist der Platz schon frei" sounds very strange to me in the context you describe. I'm guessing he started to say "Ist der Platz schon besetzt?" and changed his mind mid-sentence.
