In #dutchgrammar-1 you learned basic dutch grammar. With this knowledge you can construct basic sentences. #dutchgrammar-2 goes a step further: you learn to make complex sentences (with subclauses and the word ‘er’), and it goes deeper into the subjects of the previous course: the present perfect, past tense, irregular verbs, modal verbs, etc.
In #dutchgrammar-3 we go again 1 step further. The main topics: the past perfect, the passive voice and the conditional mood.
Using the past perfect you can indicate the sequence of activities in the past. The passive voice is an alternative way to construct a sentence (without stressing who executed the action of the verb). And the chapter about the conditional mood, explains 7 ways to use the verb ‘zouden’ to indicate a situation that is different from the current reality (like a wish, an imaginary situation, etc).
Other subjects in this course are: the construction of sentences with multiple verbs, the present participle, the past participle as an adjective, compound nouns and derivations.
This course, #dutchgrammar-3, can be interesting for anyone on the level A2-B1-B2 who wants to improve Dutch grammar.
The classification A2-B1-B2 is not only about knowledge, but also about skills. Grammar is one element, which essential for all the skills (speaking, listening, reading). Doing this course is only the first step to get to a higher level. This course will provide you with the theoretical basis. In order to apply the grammar in speech correctly, you need to practise a lot.
