How to use this course

In this blog texts are provided in order to teach you Dutch. A lot of focus will be both on vocabulary and the grammar.

Each lesson will contain a text and some grammar. The lessons are short, in order to make it possible to work through the method fastly. Each lesson also contains vocabulary and each time you will see how much vocabulary you know if you have worked through everything. The vocabulary amount is based on the root words. This means that ‘bericht‘ is a new word, but ‘berichten‘ (plural) isn’t. Within the vocabulary, only the root word will be counted as a new learned word. There is an exception for this with the verbs ‘to be‘ in Dutch, because this is an important irregular verb with conjugations which look quite different from eachother, all other verbs however aren’t considered as containing new words in the conjugations.

There will be seperate posts containing the grammar of the lessons so that you can easily go back to the grammar parts which you want to practice, but if you don’t want to learn a lot of grammar you can also decide yourself what grammar you want to learn by going to the Grammar section and choosing the grammar which you need.


Since older words will often not be given in new lessons it’s very important to make sure that you learned the new amount of words before you go on with the next lesson, otherwise it’s possible that you won’t understand the texts anymore.

Sometimes there will be seperate posts with the vocabulary thus far and there can also be posts containing some new vocabulary and just texts.

There will also be uploads with exercises which you can do if you want some extra practice, but the main focus is on the lessons. Once there is enough vocabulary the explanation will be both in Dutch and English and after a while only in Dutch.
