My friend and I were trying to do some kind of 'brain storming' session of the vocabulary we have learned in Deutsch so far. But he said this sentence to me:
Ich kann schneller laufen als du.
I told him the word order is wrong, the verb
laufen should be in the last position because
kann is a modal verb but he insisted that both sentences are correct. Is this an exception to the verb position rule when there is a modal verb in the sentence? I Googled it and couldn't find anything.
