Relative pronouns are words which link up a sentence with an extra snippet of information.

Relative pronouns

When you include an extra phrase with a relative pronoun in it, it's called a relative clause.

Examples of relative pronoun use

  • I went into the new shopping centre which is amazing -> Ich bin zum neuen Einkaufszentrum gegangen das unglaublich ist.
  • My little brother, who is cheeky, stole my chocolate -> Mein kleiner Bruder, der frech ist, hat meine Schokolade gestohlen.
  • I like coffee that is really strong -> Ich mag Kaffee, der sehr stark ist.
  • I went to a castle where you could climb up the towers -> Ich bin zu einem Schloss gegangen, wo man die Türme hochklettern konnte.

'Which', 'that' and 'who' are translated as 'den', 'der', 'die' and 'das'. 'Where' is 'wo'.
