In this chapter, you will learn about the numbers in Dutch. Numbers are used when doing maths, but also when talking about the date or the time. The numbers are needed in any type of conversation. There are two types of numbers in Dutch: cardinal numbers and ordinal numbers. Both groups can be divided in definite and indefinite numbers.
Definite cardinal numbers are used for counting in Dutch. The definite cardinal numbers give an exact amount:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10
11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90, 100
All definite numbers from 20 till 99 are formed in a similar way. If you know the numbers 21 and 22, you can also form the numbers 45, 66, 78 and so on.
100, 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900, 1000
Ordinal numbers are used to show a ranking. The table below shows you the ordinal numbers of 1 to 10.
Definite ordinal numbers are always written as one word. A hyphen '-' is used for the right pronunciation of large ordinal numbers.
There are also indefinite cardinal and -ordinal numbers. The indefinite numbers give an amount that is not precise.

As non-native parents it is certainly not easy to teach your children Dutch or to help with the fluency of the new language. Who wants some... extra exercise for his children? I can help you with that. As their vocabulary becomes more and more extensive and their sentences become increasingly fluid, your children will get more and more self-confident. To speak well the Dutch language will surely benefit them now and later. Do your children need some help with their homework, especially with their Dutch, then I can help with that. Even as non-native-speaking adults, it is sometimes difficult to have enough exercise. That is why also adults who want to make progress in speaking the Dutch language are welcome here! We can practice the everyday language together. Read more

I identify your strengths and weaknesses, helping you in becoming confident with the language so that you will start speaking it from the very beginning. It's a step by step process but by focusing on conversation and pronunciation, you will be satisfied with the results. I offer regular methods but adapting my teaching style to your needs. Also, we will work with articles and books to talk about topics of your interest, videos and the news. I'm looking forward to meeting you! Read more

My wife is from Belgium and I decided to move to there after I met her. In the beginning it was difficult because I couldn't understand anything but with the help of a native Dutch speaker I improved and now me and my wife only speak Dutch.
I was so nervous for my exchange to the Netherlands because I couldn't speak any Dutch. After doing an online language course of 24 hours I was feeling way more secure about my stay in Europe.
