In this class you'll learn how to make sentences in Dutch in which you can express what you or someone says, feels, hopes, dreams, etc. In grammatical terms, we call this "indirect speech". These are sentences starting with "hij zei dat...", "ik hoop dat...", "ik vraag of...", etc.
So, in this class you'll learn about the rules, the verbs that you can use, and you can practice yourself! Indirect speech is always formulated in a subordinate clause (bijzin), so it's really good to practice your skills with making bijzinnen as well!
The course also includes a short story with a podcast! :)
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, the owner and founder of the online language school "Dutchies to be - Learn Dutch with Kim". Before I founded my online school, I studied Dutch linguistics, did a Ph.D. in Dutch computational literature (which I, unfortunately, due to a burnout, couldn't finish) and I worked for several years as a teacher "Dutch as a second language".
In my online language school "Dutchies to be - learn Dutch with Kim" you can learn Dutch in a fun and easy way by watching my YouTube videos and enrolling in online courses.
