De & het

Learn all about the categories for DE and HET-words

Seriously, what's up in Dutch with DE and HET? How can we ever learn which words have DE and which ones have HET? In this class I'm giving you an overview of categories for the DE- and HET-words. However: there are a few exceptions of course AND not all words fall into one of these categories! That's why I also uploaded a list with 72 frequently used HET-words, so you can learn them by heart!

I've also added one extra class about the demonstratives deze, die, dit and dat. So you can learn about these words and practice with them as well!

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. 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 !
