Would "Ich hoffe nur, dass ihm es gut geht" work?
No. You don't have that much variety for this subclause, the answer above is the only valid word sequence.
Can someone explain me the word order of this
"dass es ihm gut geht"
Is the "es" necessary? Thanks
Its very typical: ..., dass es(subjekt) ihm(Dativobjekt) gut(Adverb) geht(Verb). Any dass-sentence is structured like this
Why is it ihm and not ihn
"i only hope that's he's doing well" isn't accepted, reported though
