What is the differencw between de and het? As far as I understand de is masculine the, da is feminine, and then het means a few things: sometimes it, sometimes I, and sometimes the. When should i know what to use?
De is the article for masculine/feminine words, het for neutral words. There are some rules, but you basically you just have to learn it for each word: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3732938
Besides the article 'het', there is also the personal pronoun 'het', translated as it.
