Subordinate Clauses III

In this chapter, we address two more wonderful types of German subordinate clauses: Concessive and final clauses. Concessive clauses usually give a counter reason. These subordinate clauses are formed with "obwohl" (although). Final clauses, on the other hand, state a purpose or goal. In the last chapter, we already talked about one way to form such clauses, namely with "um ... zu" (in order to). In this chapter, we will discuss another way: forming final clauses with "damit".

Conjunctions: obwohl, damit
