heeft/heb/hebben

I have been taking this course for a while, and I was wondering what the difference is between heeft, heb, and hebben. Thanks!

  • Hebben is the verb "to have" and is used with all of the plural pronouns (wij/we, jullie, zij/ze)

  • Heb is the first person singular conjugation of Hebben, so Ik heb = I have

  • Heeft is the third person singular (hij, zij/ze, het) so zij heeft = she has :)

Hebben is the verb "to be" [...]

Did you mean to say "to have" ?

there's also the HEBT for "je" I don't know why but I'm still not sure what to use with "je" sometimes, "hebt" or "heeft" maybe it's because of the "t".. I'm used to using the same verb for you and he,she,it..

Hebben is 'to have'. To be translates zo 'zijn'

Ik heb. Jij hebt. Hij/Zij heeft. Jullie hebben. Wij hebben. Zij (they) hebben.
