Question: Vous _______ le bus arrive.
My answer: Vous attendez le bus arrive.
I just don't understand why it's wrong.
The correct answer is:
Vous attendez que le bus arrive.
It is wrong because you have two different subjects in the sentence: vous and le bus. In these cases you always need que.
Thank you. A helpful clue as to the workings of this verb.
I just cannot seem to get my head around this topic no matter how many times I review it.
Isn't the bus the object?
No, le bus is the subject, it is doing the arriving.
