    Same as. I have about 70 pages of assorted history books to be reading...but I just can't bring myself to do it.

    I may have lied about the dissertation part...but I have lots of work to be doing. I am as yet undecided about which direction my dissertation will take.

    weiß ich schon. I'm looking forward to next year though because I will only have the one history module, as opposed to two.

    Hallo

    Ich glaube, ich muss mehr Deutsch sprechen aber ich habe (wie immer) nichts zu sagen. Meine Arbeit ist noch langweilig aber wann ist arbeiten in einen Lager gut? (That sentence is probably wrong, but I can't see how to do it. The "wann" introduces a subordinate clause, meaning it should theoretically be "wann arbeiten in einen Lager gut ist?" but that sounds wrong ).
    No it doesn't - it's a rhetorical question, not a subordinate clause, so something like "wann ist es gut, in einem Lager zu arbeiten?".

    Heutzutage arbeite ich an eine Bestände (Portfolio?) so ich kann (hoffentlich) einem (I'm guessing dative there?) neuen Beruf finden.
    Ugh, I think it depends what you're trying to say for "portfolio" - what type of portfolio is it?

    "So that" = damit (subordinating); and "finden", like most transitive verbs, takes the accusative: "...damit ich (hoffentlich) einen neuen Beruf finden kann". One small final point: "Beruf" often means "career" rather than "job".

    Aber braucht man nicht eine deutsche Katze? :tongue:
    Ich weiss nicht...es scheint, dass meine Katze es mag, wenn ich Deutsch zu ihr spreche. Sie versteht "raus" und "tschuss" glaube ich.

    wtid- Penguin do some really good parallel text books. I think there's two of them.

    Danke

    An artwork portfolio. Friederike doesn't even know a word for it so I'm not sure what to say. Actually, it would be a new career, so it still works, but yes, I did intend it to mean "job". So it would be "arbeit" then I assume?

    I find it hard to tell what is a direct object and what is an indirect object, which makes using cases difficult. It's easier when the rule is "after X preposition, the dative is used".

    Haha Das ist lustig! Meine Mutter sagt "raus" immer zu meiner Katze und es hilft uns immer, die Katze aus dem Haus zu gehen. (Sie ist alt und kann nicht zu lang in dem Haus bleiben, falls es Probleme gibt.)

    Arbeit is fine, as is Job, or Stelle. There's loads of words for it.

    Most verbs that take an object will take a direct object. It's only ever an indirect object when the idea is something like "I bought myself something" (i.e. you didn't actually buy yourself, but you bought something for yourself - do you see the 'dative' idea coming through here?), except in very very few exceptional cases, e.g. helfen (ich half ihm), folgen (wir folgten ihnen), which take the dative always.
