Les 4: The verbs HEBBEN & ZIJN (A1)

Hoi Dutchie to be!

In this class, I'll teach you the two most common verbs in Dutch: hebben & zijn. Some examples are:

  1. Ik heb een kat. (I have a cat.)
  2. Thomas heeft honger. (Thomas "has hunger". Thomas is hungry.)
  3. Wie ben jij? (Who are you?)
  4. U bent te laat! (You are too late!)

You can take the quiz below. Be aware that sometimes more than one answer is possible ;) You can check the PDF file if you don't understand whenever both options are possible. And I also included a couple of the important phrases I used in my video.

Good luck!
