"The child is a boy."
Translation:Het kind is een jongen.
Could someone please explain the difference between Het and De ... I thought it might have been gender but I pretty sure that is incorrect. Thanks in advance!
Het is for neuter and de is for masculine and feminine, but there is even more. https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3732938 http://blogs.transparent.com/dutch/de-or-het-knowing-when-to-use-which/
