Moet het niet "wilt" zijn, aangezien het hier om de derde persoon gaat?

I just looked at dict.cc and saw that directors can be either directeuren or directeurs. Are they interchangeable or is one more common than the other?

I never heard anyone say directeurs, directeuren is the common form.

I gots me a question for conjunctions here, honestly. Which would be correct: "De directeur wil koffie met melk als suiker" or, "De directeur wil koffie met melk en suiker"?

The latter, with the first one you are saying he wants coffee with milk as sugar.

Kan je niet slechts zeggen "De directeur wil een latte."?

    Have you received a reply to this? According to the Memrise app "latte" is "koffie met melk" in Dutch.

    Thanks! My thoughts exactly. Why use many words when one word will do.

    Why 'wil' not 'wilt' referring to a third person?
