Most Important Verb Tables I’m Currently Learning

In last weeks post I talked about different vocabulary lists and how I planned to highlight what I considered to be the most useful verbs to learn first. With such a complex and new language you’ve got to start and narrow the list down in one way or another. My task for this week being “Reading Week” here in the UK is to recap everything from college from the last 3 lessons, all verbs, vocabulary etc and I have some homework too!

This post is going to give you the conjugated verbs I plan to learn first and work with in ordered to complete my homework. The homework task is to write 15 sentences using the vocabulary lists and the correct conjugation of the verbs. I had a run through these on Sunday after checking a few tricky ones with my Dutch buddy I didn’t do too badly on these. The main tip I’ve taken from it all is that there are just so many rules it’s a case of attacking it in away that is logical and covers any room for error. Unknown

e.g. Mijn vader hebben de boterham gekozen – ‘hebben’ is plural so the sentences doesn’t make sense. What is should read is Mijn vader heft de boterham gekozen – My father choose the sandwich.

 

With Dutch, as I’ve mentioned many times before in the last 3 months is RULES, RULES, RULES. There are rules for everything to consider at all times even when making the most simplest of sentences I guess it’s the same for any language and I’m not saying learning English is easy, we’re just lucky that the world has taken a shining to English and lots of people speak it.

So here is the link to my list of ‘Most Important Verbs’ to learn. There are 24 verbs and I plan to write up 24 sentences using every one of them in at least one way.

Here is my current list of practice sentences using irregular verbs that I believe are right. I have checked them and asked any dodgy looking ones to my Dutch friend. All being well I’ve not made another pluralizing issue. Do let me know if there are mistakes though. I am a big fan of mistakes because I think it helps you learn them fast so as not to make the same mistake twice! (The fact that a lot of them are past tense is purely coincidental!)

  1. Ik bedacht op jou – I thought of you
    Ik dacht aan jou

    Wij besloten gann op de Bioscoop – We decided to go to the cinema
    Wij besloten naar de bioscoop te gaan

    Ik bezocht mijn familie – I visited my family
    Goed

    Ik bleef naar huis – I stayed home
    Ik bleef thuis

    Jij brak jouw arm – You broke your arm
    Goed

    De vrouw hielpen de mannen – The woman helps the men
    De vrouw hielp de man if there is only one men, if there are 2 or more men it should be: de vrouw hielp de mannen

    Wij lachen – We laugh
    Goed

    Julie heeft opgeschoven naar huis – Julie moved house
    Julie is naar huis gegaan if you means Julie is a women and she is going home, or if you means she moved to another house it is Julie is verhuisd

    Hij schreef een briefje – He wrote a note
    Goed

    Ik sprak naar mijn moeder – I spoke to my mother
    Ik sprak mijn moeder

    De man vroegen een questie – The man asked a question
    De man stelde een vraag or ‘De man vroeg een vraag’ but thats strange dutch. So you got ‘vragen’ from asking a question and you have ‘vragen’ what means question. In the sentence De man vroeg een vraag you said The men asked a question, that should be good in english but vragen got 2 different meanings in dutch, so you would say The man stelde een vraag, stelde is a other word for asking but in paste time
