I'm not sure if this has already been explained, but when is it "je" and when "jij"? They are both used for "you" singular, and there seems to be no difference such as one is used in a question.
Does ''werken'' has the same meaning than the english verb ''to work'', when this one is meaning the function of an object?
''The clock doesn't work anymore''
"Werken" can mean "work, working, or to work" in English The dog might be working = De hond zou kunnen werken The clock doesn't work anymore = De klok werkt niet meer
No geen doesn't work in that sentence. You can think of geen as the negative form of een. It's explained here: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3734833
