How to use ER?

Learn how to use this small word with so many functions!

  Enroll in Course

This is going to be a mini-course on the use of the word ER. Because ER is such as small word, but it has 5 functions and the grammatical structure can get quite complex. So, if you want to learn ONCE AND FOR ALL when and how to use ER, then you definitely have to enroll in this mini-course!

Right now the first section is online, which is about the 3 referring functions of ER. Friday the 3rd of July I am going to publish a section about the 2 grammatical functions of ER. These two sections are focussing on the 5 functions, but not yet on more complex sentence structures (subordinate clauses, sentences with separable and/or reflexive verbs, passive sentences with modal verbs, etc). So, I will also be making classes about the use of ER in those kinds of sentences. And I want to make a class about expressions with ER.

In every section, you will find PDF files about the theory with a lot of examples, open questions (with answers) and audiofiles.


Outline of the course (everything in bold is online)

Section 1: the three referring functions of ER
Section 2: the two grammatical functions of ER
Section 3: ER in (complex) passive sentences
Section 4: ER and separable and/or reflexive verbs
Section 5: ER and subordinate clauses
Section 6: ER and expressions


You only need to PAY for this course ONCE. The price of this mini-course will increase every time I upload a new section. The only thing is that I can't tell when the new sections will be published, so probably you will need to have some patience for the other sections to come. BUT, once you've purchased it, you have lifetime access to the mini-course, meaning that you always get access to all the new sections FOR FREE!

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 !
