Dutch verbs (2)
Video lesson 18, is part 2 of the most common Dutch verbs. With the vocabulary of this lesson you will be able to describe another 25 activities. Please remind lesson 8, which is part 1 of the most common verbs in Dutch, to repeat the conjugation of verbs in the present tense – just a little piece of Dutch grammar which is really recommended to learn well (even within a course that pretends not to deal much with grammar).
Please note: this is just a brief introduction (vocabulary), giving the basics of the conjugation of regular Dutch verbs in the present tense. More about open/closed syllable verb conjugations, consonant changes, irregular verbs and the use of the present tense (place of the finite verb in the sentence) is discussed in detail in our online course #dutchgrammar.
