Word Order 1 is the nineteenth skill in the language tree for Dutch and has one lesson. This skill teaches the placement of adverbs and teaches a couple of them.

Grammar NotesEdit

Adverbs in Dutch always come in any of these three places, depending on various factors:

  • Always after a definitive object: Ik eet de boterham nu.
  • Always before an indefinite object: Ik eet nu elke boterham.
  • At the beginning of a sentence for emphasis. As this changes the word order through a process called inversion, it's in the next skill.


  • nu = now
  • soms = sometimes
  • daar = there
  • hier = here
  • misschien = maybe
