and welcome to the second part of our awesome series on
German Relative Clauses
In the first part (find it here), we learned a bit about relative clauses in general and in English, just have some sort of background. And then we learned the basics about how it works in German.
Here are the three important points:
- All the verbs are at the end, just like in a weil-sentence
- German uses definite articles as relative pronouns. Like… all of them.
- Look left for the gender, look right for the case
Today, in a sort of Q and A format, we’ll talk about the finer details and flesh out some differences to English that lead to a lot of mistakes. Sounds good?
Then let’s jump right in :)
