Dates and Time is the nineteenth (assuming left to right) skill in the Dutch language tree. In the eight lessons of this skill, the learner of Dutch is taught how to describe time and dates accurately in Dutch.

Tips and notesEdit

Telling timeEdit

The Dutch mostly use the English system of writing times and dates, with the sole exception of when it is half-past. The Dutch say half to the next hour. For example, 7:30 is half acht.

's Edit

The Dutch permit saying in de ochtend or in de nacht, but the more correct term is using the contraction 's. Instead, say 's morgens or 's nachts.

Capitalization with 'sEdit

If the 's begins the sentence, then the word that it is proceeding gets the capital instead. For example, " 's Morgens ga ik naar de winkel."

Capitals in DatesEdit

Dutch months and days are not capitalized.
