In this course you'll learn all negation words in Dutch: niet, geen, niets/niks, niemand, nooit en nergens. In the first part of the course, I will introduce you to all these words, also teaching you the basic difference between niet and geen, and you can practice with all negation words.
In the second part of the course, we're going to focus particularly on how to use GEEN and NIET, and specially where to place NIET in the sentence. The theory is explained in two videos and next to that I provide an extensive summary of all the rules.
After that you can practice A LOT!
- you can take a quiz of 50 multiple choice questions
- you can make 15 sentences negative yourself
- you can answer 20 questions negatively with all negation words
- you can answer 20 questions negatively with only niet and geen
- for these latter two assignments, there is an extra file with all the answers :)
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 !
