I'm trying to say

"I'm making these videos because I want to see if I can improve."

I came up with this:

Ich mache diese Videos, weil ich sehen wollen, ob ich verbessern kann.

I'm not very confident with subclauses.

There's just 2 small things wrong

wollen has to be declined: In this case the first person singular, which you can find in this declination table. Result: (ich) will

furthermore your use of verbessern requires reflexive usage:

ob ich mich verbessern kann

final result:

Ich mache diese Videos, weil ich sehen will, ob ich mich verbessern kann.

The original string is not clear:

Either you want to say "I'm making these videos because I want to see if I can improve myself." would be Ich mache diese Videos, weil ich sehen wollte, ob ich mich verbessern kann.

In case you want to improve the videos, it would be something like: Ich mache diese Videos, weil ich sehen wollte, ob ich die Videos [noch] verbessern kann.

Hope that helps.

  • Wouldn't it be "will" instead of "wollte"? – user4723 Apr 2 '14 at 14:57
  • Hmmm... good question. I decided for "wollte", because the decission has been in past ... but to be honest, I cannot say whether its grammatically correct. – frlan Apr 2 '14 at 15:17
