The Passive Simple is the forty-fourth (assuming left to right) skill in the Dutch language tree. It contains two lessons that teach the formation of the passive past (as opposed to the passive present).

Tips and notesEdit

Passive pastEdit

The passive past is created in the same way as the present passive, with the only difference being the use of werden, the past tense of worden.


Lesson 1Edit

  • werden = was
  • gebeld = called
  • gezien = seen
  • gesteund = supported
  • geschreven = written

Lesson 2Edit

  • geopend = opened
  • gepresenteerd = presented
  • gevolgd = followed
  • verkocht = sold
  • gewassen = washed
  • gestolen = stolen
