comment German sentence structure
@TomAu "Lese is always second after ich" -> I know that this is clear to you, but just for the reference: a sentence does not need to start in "subject + verb". "Bücher lese ich in meiner Freizeit gern" is also a valid German sentence.

comment What points do I need to consider in order to find the best online course for me?
I second what Emanuel said. Focus on learning basic vocabulary first and get used to these words. You'll find all these words in any textbooks and online courses. And you'll find a lot of examples there, too. Vocabulary is what you need to make you understand. – It's helpful to me that I add example sentences to my flash cards. I don't learn "book - Buch", but "book - Buch 'Das Buch hat 1000 Seiten' 'Das Buch ist langweilig'". This way, you learn how to use the word, you repeat other words and you learn basic grammar.

comment Personal pronoun in a dependent sentence
@Emanuel Sorry, I wasn't quite clear. I didn't mean to say that it would be incorrect without it. But it certainly has its grammatical function, and if you leave it out, you can lose some important information. Not in this sentence, though, because it's certainly unambiguous.

comment Personal pronoun in a dependent sentence
I don't think that it's grammatically redundant. Of course, if you drop the pronoun you still would understand this sentence, because there's no possible ambiguity whatsoever; but from a grammar perspective, it's necessary.

comment Wie heißt es richtig, Masterthesis oder Masterarbeit?
@guidot Es ist doch unerheblich, dass es einst englische Begriffe sind. Möchtest du die Wörter als fremdsprachlich kennzeichnen und getrennt schreiben, dann bitte "Master Thesis" in Anführungszeichen. Verwendest du sie aber in einem Fließtext als 'eingedeutschte' Begriffe, dann auch deutsche Regeln anwenden. Also ja, Masterthesis sollte die richtige Schreibweise sein.
