10.) You can see that the sentence order is a bit looser in German (good that something is!) The subject of the sentence is in blue in these examples and is clearly not always in front of the verb it is attached to...Also German sentences tend to be very long and sometimes I tend to use too many dependent clauses, which is a rather Germanic syntax..
Students can separate each piece in piles based on whether the clause is dependent or independent. After sorting, students can either match each half with its corresponding clause, or use it to create their own complex sentence.
