"Do they drink beer or wine?"

Translation:Drinken zij bier of wijn?

November 24, 2014



Does dutch have word order similar to german?


Why isn't it "doen zij drinken bier of wijn"? Why no use of the word "do"?


I finally got this one right! I keep wanting to translate this literally from English to Dutch--so instead of "Drinken zij..." I end up trying to say "Zij drinken..." At least I'm beginning to get the hang of this now. :)
