Adjectives in Dutch: Video lesson 9 is about the most used adjectives in Dutch. Adjectives are words, that tell something about nouns. Examples are: big, small, interesting, beautiful. In the Dutch language – like in English – we say the adjectives before the noun. For example: mooie bloem (beautiful flower), stoute jongen (naughty boy), grote auto (big car). With the vocabulary of this lesson you will be able to express your opinion much better. This lesson is “interessant” or “saai” ?
Please note: this is just a brief introduction (vocabulary). Adjectives can change their form, depending on other words in the sentence and their function. Dutch adjectives sometimes get an extra [e]. The number of vowels may change, as well as some consonants. This is explained in detail in our online course #dutchgrammar.
