The structure of subordinate clauses

Learn about the structure of the "bijzin" - (B1-level)

In this course you'll learn about the structure of Dutch subordinate clauses (bijzinnen) and I will teach you how to make bijzinnen with conjunction words. In this first class we practice with three subordinate conjunction words (this means that they introduce a subordinate clause): omdat, als & toen and also with one coordinate conjunction word (which introduces another main sentence) want. In this case I can emphasize on the difference between main sentence structure and the structure of sub clauses.

The theory is explained in a video and in a PDF-file with extra information (in English) and you can take four quizzes with a total of 40 questions, so you can test your new knowledge!

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 !
