So how do you know when to use zijn and not hebben?

Most verbs in Dutch take hebben in the Perfect Tense.

• Example: "Hij heeft het gezien." (He has seen it.)

However there are quite a few verbs that take zijn in the Perfect Tense -- when the English equivalent might normally be to have.

Example: "Ik ben gekomen." (I have come.)

The correct dutch sentence would be: De kok zal TEGEN volgende maand gestorven zijn. The original sentence does'nt make any sense without that one word...

'tegen volgende maand gestorven': he wil be died before the first of next month.

' volgende maand gestorven zijn: next month, you can say : he is died. But it can be the last day of that month.
