... is this part of some evil plot?


You haven't tasted his cooking!


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...


how would you say

"the cook will have died next month"
