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!
This is class is also part of the Dutch Sentence Structure Course, so if you want to practice with more sentence structures, you can find that course here.
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 !
