An object clause replaces the object of a sentence. In German there are genitive-, dative- and accusative objects
An object sentence replaces the object of a sentence. We distinguish between genitive, dative or accusative object.
There are certain words with which you can ask for the object of a sentence. With the help of these questions you can find out the case of the object.
|Object||Example||Example translation||Question||Question translation|
|Genitive object||Ich bin mir bewusst, dass meine Tat Konsequenzen haben wird.||I am aware, that my act will have consequences||Wessen bin ich mir bewusst?||Of what am I aware?|
|Dative object||Wir helfen, wem wir wollen.||We help, who we want to||Wem helfen wir?||Who do we help?|
|Accusative object||Er sieht nicht, wer da kommt.||Er doesn't see, who comes there||Wen sieht er nicht?||Who doesn't he see?|
A subject clause replaces the subject of a sentence. You ask for the subject with "Wer/Was?" (Who/What?)

Hi! I am Donatella, I'm Italian and I have been living in Vienna since 2009. I teach Italian and German as a foreign language. I really... like teaching and I enjoy it! Every day I have the great chance to work together with people with different ages, backgroung and learning goals. Thanks to my job I can broaden and deepen my knowledge and skills and of course meet people from all over the world. Foreign languages represent my first interest, as a learner too. After having experienced a distance learning course I find the e-learning a personal, specific and practical method to learn, improve or polish up a foreign language! I would be glad to hear from you! Read more
Hello everyone and a big warm welcome to all the fellow language learners, My name is Katerina, I’m a native Russian speaker and a foreign... language teacher from St Petersburg, Russia. I’ve always been addicted to learning foreign languages, be it English, German, Spanish, Turkish or Arabic, so turning my passion into my job was just a matter of time. I have a Master’s degree in linguistics which taught me to understand the way the mechanism of a language works and thus to help my students see the logics behind the grammar rules. Being a constant language learner enables me to see the process from both sides and to predict the difficulties my students might face. The fact that I’m not a native speaker of English or German means I’ve been through exactly the same language-learning journey you’re about to take, and thanks to my personal experience as a student, I can make this road smooth for you. I've had students of all ages, from pre-school kids to senior generation, and I feel comfortable working with both beginners and those who are eager to take their learning process to a new level. In my classes I encourage you to talk in the language we’re studying as much as possible, putting every single bit of knowledge into practice right away. If you’re a Russian-learner, I’d be glad to prove it to you that you can absolutely nail my mother-tongue - and yes, you’ll be able to make a small talk in Russian by the end of the first class even if you’re an absolute beginner! We’ll be focusing on the topics that are most relevant to your goals, while discovering the language and getting to know more about the culture of people who speak it. I offer a short free trial class, for us to give each other a smile and discuss our teaching pattern, in order to ajust it to your goals and make our lessons the bee's knees :) See you soon!
