Dutch is a language of grammatical gender. This means that nouns have different genders, and are affected differently in certain situations because of this. It may sound a bit complicated now, but it is actually very easy to understand.
De is used for masculine and feminine nouns, this must be learned when learning the noun. If you are unsure of a noun's gender, look it up in a Dutch dictionary.
Het is used for neuter nouns. For example het meisje ~ the girl. It will be easy to know what gender a noun is if de or het is in front of it.
Is the girls not feminim?
Why it is use het not de as feminim world. Because i suppose that girl is exactly feminim than neuter
Thank you alec
"Meisje" is a diminutive. Singular diminutives are always het.
How do you pronounce een, especially the double e ? This course pronounces it here as a French "Eu" but Google translate has "Een" pronounced like a slightly longer Dutch "En". Which one is correct ?
