My day at Deutsch Akadamie has been pretty fun. Our class room is spacious and this morning it was a bit sunny on the 7th floor.
Today our teacher has taught us new ways to connect sentences using weil, da, dann, obwohl, trotzdem, sodas, darum, deswegen und deshalb. We learnt which sentences are with a Hauptsatzn (main sentence) and Nebensatz (Subordinate clause) and which connectors are with a Hauptsatz plus a Hauptsatz. Very important to note is that in a Nebensatz, the verbs always goes directly to the end! It sounds strange but grammatically it is correct! For example: Obwohl meaning although is with a Hauptsatz plus a Nebensatz: Anna heiratet Peter nicht, obwohl sie ihn so sehr liebt. The second sentence after the comma is the nebensatz, therefore the verb liebt goes right at the end. We went through many examples together in the class and each one of us had the opportunity to verbally try it out until we all clearly understood the rules. These connectors that we learnt today are very useful and can be used on a daily basis to better express ourselves and to understand others as well. It is already the third week of this amazingly course and I look very forward to the days ahead at Deutsch Akadamie where learning is fun. Thank goodness we have such an amazing highly skilled teacher!
