Dutch grammar :)

Hi everyone!! I discovered a wonderful site to understand Dutch grammar! :D I find it because I had the big doubt of "Het" and "De":

"Unfortunately, non-native speakers just have to put up with it and learn the de and het nouns by heart.."

Despite this, I solved many other questions I had about grammar and now I feel like I can solve my tree easily :)

I don't know if someone posted this before (maybe someone did) but it was really helpful for me and I hope it can be useful to you! Have an excellent day! (I loove Duolingo, and I looove this community!)

Also... I always put this site in my posts xD It is called "Hi native!" And you can ask native speakers your questions and upload voice recordings to ask if it sounds natural :)

Love to you all, from México <3

Hi Clau!! I am from Mexico too, I am a newbie in Dutch, but I hope some day I will be able to understand, so far is the hardest language I have ever learnt!

The hardest language?! What about German?

De qué parte eres? Yo soy de Jalisco, de San Miguel El Alto, pero las ironías de la vida... Mido 1.55 jajaja entonces vivo en Tlaxcala (el estado que no existe según Chumel Torres xD) saludos! Y sí... Me parece muuuyy dificil, me cuesta más el turco porque me cuesta recordar tantos sufijos y prefijos... Pero la pronunciación es definitivamente más difícil en holandés... Casi renuncio cuando me topé con la palabra "alsjeblieft" xD pero yess we caaaan!!! We are Mexi-can(s)!!!

Yes Dutch has a notorious habit of placing seemingly random "de" or "het" in front of words. If you have any questions; I'm a Dutch native speaker so I could help with some words and/or pronunciations.
