Is the Dutch sentence structure a bit complicated sometimes? Kim, what kind of question is this? What about almost ALL of the time?
Well, yes, you're right. The Dutch sentence structure is challenging, especially because we have quite some (and sometimes contradicting) word order rules! So, this is why I am making this course ONLY about sentences, to teach you all the basic structures!
We start with different kinds of main sentences (hoofdzinnen), learn the inversion rule, touch the passive sentences and then learn different kinds of subordinate clauses (bijzinnen) and also a LOT of conjunction words and adverbia.
After taking this course, you will certainly master all different kinds of Dutch sentence structures!
The outline for each class is as follows:
(1) a video with a lecture on YouTube
(2) exclusive downloadable materials in the online class, such as:
- PDF-files with a summary of the subject + extra information that is not covered in the video
- extra quizzes + worksheets that you can take to test your knowledge
- open questions including correction models
(3) A final test
(4) After completing the course you'll be issued a CERTIFICATE of completion!

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 !

What others say...
This Dutch Sentence Structure Course is highly recommended for you to make the first step of learning Dutch. Kim's blending teaching method is pretty vivid and educational. She has summarized a bunch of valuable materials, graphs and tests for every course. It is easier for me to read through her summaries than a thick grammar book, and it helps me review important contents over and over. You know, neither of us like being cooped up in a small room during quarantine, but I have to admit it is the best timing to learn Dutch without any distraction! What are you waiting for? How about saving your coffee money and enroll this course! It is definitely worth it! You can also get a lovely certificate in the end! <3
