      • This is not a compound-complex sentence. It’s actually a compound sentence consisting of two independent clauses. A compound-complex sentence, as its name indicates, should have at least two independent clauses (i.e., compound sentence) and one dependent clause. In your example, you’ve used an adjective clause, which is not a dependent clause. Please note that an adjective clause is not a major part of any sentence and it can be omitted. Pay attention to the following example of a compound-complex sentence:
        Although Robert was a monolingual, he moved to Canada and he tried to learn both English and French because it was essential for him to speak both of the languages.

    • Although, it seems easy to make an example of compound-complex sentence, it requires to know both the compound sentence and the complex sentence properly before you want to start writing.
