  5. "He has given me the car."

"He has given me the car."

Translation:Hij heeft mij de auto gegeven.

November 29, 2014



geven aan = give to? is it always aan?


Except that the alternative given was mij ... gegeven


Right. Just like in English where you can leave out the "to", the same is true in Dutch:

  • Hij heeft de auto aan mij gegeven - He has given the car to me
  • Hij heeft mij de auto gegeven - He has given me the car

What I meant is that no other preposition is used to translate "give to".
