How to use ER?
Learn how to use this small word with so many functions!
The word ER has 5 functions and in this class you'll learn how to use three of them. These three are the "verwijzende functies" (the referring functions) or ER. The other two functions are grammatical functions, and those will be taught in another class later.
In this online class you'll find a 4-page PDF file of the theory with examples, 30 open questions with answers and two audiofiles in which I am reading the 30 answers with ER out loud. In one audiofile I pronounce ER very clearly, in the other audiofile I am reading the sentence in a normal pace, so you can train your ear in recognizing ER in these sentences.
Good luck and have fun!
I am Kim Jautze, a Dutch teacher living in Den Haag (the Netherlands). I’ve studied Dutch literature and linguistics and did a PhD in computational Dutch literature. It was during my PhD that I discovered my passion for teaching students.
In January 2017 I started my career as a Dutch teacher at a language school, but soon I started my own school Linguanl. At my school I combine existing methods with creating my own courses and materials, focusing on conversational skills and coaching students to gain more self-confidence in order to speak Dutch in everyday situations. Because above all: speaking Dutch should be fun!
July 2019 I've also started the online school "Dutchies to be - Learn Dutch with Kim". I make informative videos on a variety of topics which I upload on YouTube. In this online school I offer supplementary courses and classes !
