comment Position of verbs in clauses
Thanks for clarifying. I knew that Denn had a different structure. So do you always put the main verb at the end of a clause involving weil? And also, a secondary question: when would you use denn instead of weil? Thanks for your help :)

comment Difference between 'Ich sollte' and 'Ich hätte … sollen'
But is the first one grammatically correct, and does it mean the same as the second one? I.e. does Ich konnte mit Ihnen gehen mean the same as Ich hätte mit Ihnen gehen konnten?

comment Difference between 'Ich sollte' and 'Ich hätte … sollen'
Yeah, that pretty much clears it up: sollte refers to a past event which assumedly happened, whereas hätte ... sollen refers to a past event which was unrealized.

comment Shame vs. Embarrassment
It's really interesting how there are so many words for shame or embarrassment in German. I found out recently that's there's no real equivalent for our definition of 'shame' in Russian, which is also interesting.
