Prepositions in Dutch: Video lesson 11 is about prepositions in Dutch. Prepositions are words that indicate a location or a direction. Examples are in, to, above, under etc. The right use of prepositions can be difficult, especially if used in the combination with verbs and specific word combinations. Within this course for beginners, we will not deal with this (extensive) part of Dutch grammar. Make sure you know the words in this lesson well, and you will be able to say most you want, and the Dutch will understand you.
