Why is there no assignment for Dutch Perfectum (I have made/she has worked)?

The Perfectum is more commonly used in Dutch than the Imperfectum. Will there be added an assignment for: 1. Participle of the perfectum, both for regular and irregular verbs (ge+root+d/t) 2. Exercises to practise the usage of the correct auxiliar verb: either 'hebben' or 'zijn'.

It's funny there is an assignment for the future tense using 'zullen' which is not that commonly used in a reference to the future, but not for the perfectum.

Actually, 'zullen' is a verb with many meanings and usages, depending on the sentence, so I think that assignment should be redone and named 'Zullen' instead of future or future past perfect...

Ah, that must be because you are currently learning Italian, not Dutch.

In any case, there already is a skill about the Dutch perfectum (Present Perfect). We are currently working on a new version of the Dutch course and there it will be split into three parts.

I would also LOOOVE to see an assignment where you have to determine what verbal tense fits best: perfectum or imperfectum...
