Introduction Edit

This is the wiki page for Dutch grammar. Dutch grammar is generally considered easy for an English speaker so it shouldnt be too difficult.This is mostly an overview or a reference page. This is not intended to be an extensive guide and you're probably best of using course book. I will assume that you already know the Dutch alphabet and spelling rules
