  5. "Zodra het regent gaan wij na…

"Zodra het regent gaan wij naar huis."

Translation:As soon as it rains, we are going home.

December 15, 2014



why should this be wrong: "as soon as it rains we go to the house"? i don't get, I mean it's a weird phrase in English but it's grammatically correct I believe.

Is "Zodra het regent wij naar huis gaan." correct?

I would also like to know that!

In the south of the US we say go to the house for going home.

Interesting. In the UK it is going home most of the time. If I am out with my wife and we have had enough of the company, one of us will say "It's about time we went home", although in answer to a friend's question like "Where shall we go?" I might answer "To my house/place" or just "To mine". I think it's partly context, and partly emotion. "Going to the house" has no emotional draw, but "going home" definitely does. I bet you wouldn't go to the house for Thanksgiving or Christmas. You would go home.

Well, I was thinking the same since I write like that and got it wrong. I think you should report it considering you are an english native speaker.

house and home are not the same thing.

"We're going home as soon as it rains" seems pretty straightforward to me...

Shouldn't it be "thuis", instead of huis to express "home"

December 15, 2014


No, 'thuis' refers always to 'at home'.

I didnt get why my answer was not correct...turns out i mistyped 'ass' instead of 'as'

I don't understand why "gaan" occurs here. Could someone clarify?

February 6, 2018


because of wij . I think the order of subject verb reversed because of zodra

I made a similar comment before, the word "regent" is pronounced weirdly, at least to my ear it doesn't sound right
