Why is "Ik ga jij volgen" wrong?

You in English can be both subject and object, in contrast to e.g. he (subject) and him (object). In Dutch jij is subject and jou is object.

  • jij kijkt = you look (jij and you are subject)
  • ik kijk naar jou = I look at you (jou and you are object)

Keep in mind jij and jou, as well as the possessive jouw, can all be replaced by je.
