There is no embassy in Amsterdam :)
Ze zijn alle in den Haag, he?
Absolutely right! But we do know that, after four years, your correction has had no effect on the folks at Duolingo.
Why is the infinitive of the verb 'aanvragen' in the middle of the sentence when you are using a modal verb 'kunnen'?
Having it at the end would be correct as well. Prepositional clauses (like "bij de ambassade") can come either before or after the infinitive.
So will "Hij kan een visum bij de ambassade in Amsterdam aanvragen" be correct too?
Too bad it's not accepted then.
I get this wrong every time! I always write "Hij kan voor een visum aanvragen bij de ambassade in Amsterdam". I know that the "voor" isn't supposed to be there, but I don't understand why, and I can't get it into my head :(
