Modal Verbs is the thirty-second (assuming left to right) skill in the Dutch language tree and the last skill before the third checkpoint. The learner of Dutch is introduced to the modal verbs in these three lessons. The modal verbs are verbs that often require a second helping verb, but do not require the te+infinite format mentioned in previous lessons. All that is required is the pair of verbs.
