The Future Tense is the forty-fifth (assuming left to right) skill in the Dutch language tree with a total of five lessons. These lessons teach the use of the future tense to the learner of Dutch. The future tense describes what will happen.

Tips and notesEdit

The future tense is formed in two possible ways: using zullen or gaan. Zullen means "will," and gaan (in this case) means "to be going to."
