I can't understand what is the difference between "alles" and "alle", someone is able to explain it to me?
If I said Alle kinderen houden van spelen, is also good?
I would say: Alle kinderen houden ervan om te spelen, it sounds better, I think so =)
It's grammatically correct, I'd say, but it means All children love playing.
Why dont you use 'tot'??
Dutch is just one of those languages that use infinitive(?) form over breaking it into two words i would guess…
Keep in mind that willen is a modal verb, and as such, it requires a bare infinitive (in this case, spelen).
We haven't been taught infinitive yet.
No infinitive? Afrikaans uses om/te to denote this, and I'm surprised to see Dutch have a simpler form of the infinitive.
spelen is a bare infinitive.
Why is it false to say "Elk kinderen willen spelen"?
Why would "om te spelen" not work? Shouldn't it mean the same thing?
Because willen is a modal verb, and so, it's followed by a bare infinitive (verb without te before it).
Note that om te implies certain intentionality, you can think of it as in order to.
