Verbs: Present is the eleventh (assuming left to right) skill in the Dutch language tree. In these nine lessons, a significantly long list of verbs is introduced to the student of Dutch. It also provides good practice with verb conjugation.

Tips and notesEdit

Dutch people often claim that "houden" has a -dt ending. No such thing exists.

Whenever "jij" is used in an open-ended question (i.e. yes or no), then it loses its "t" from the verb. Example: "Ben jij aan het fietsen?" (Are you biking?).
