An idiom I really must remember!

Why do we say "Ik zit in moeilijkheden" because this means I sit in difficulties which is plural. Trouble is not plural. Does Dutch lack a word for trouble?

There's multiple ways to say you're in trouble in Dutch.

  • Ik zit in de penarie
  • Er is stront aan de knikker
  • Ik heb problemen
  • Ik zit in de problemen
  • Ik heb moeilijkheden
  • Ik zit in de moeilijkheden

Those are some ones I can quickly think of (Don't know which ones the course will accept).

"Er is stront aan de knikker" Deze kende ik nog niet, dank je wel.
