I was wondering if the sentence

Wie lange dauert am Freitag unseren Unterricht?

is correct. Do I have to use Akkusativ in this case like I did or not? Does "unseren Unterricht" go before or after "am Freitag"?


Correct is:

Wie lange dauert am Freitag unser Unterricht?

Because "unser Unterricht" is the subject of the sentence, it has to be nominative.

Wie lange dauert unser Unterricht am Freitag?

is also correct. Because Freitag is last, there is some emphasis on it.

    No, here wir is the subject and Urlaub is the accusative object, so it has to be "unseren Urlaub". – RHa Aug 10 '18 at 14:14
