Unit 2

For your unit 2 test, please read the following!


You’ll start with a translation exercise. First a number of words (important words and expressions) from your book. You can find these at the back of your unit (p. 44).
In your workbook are also a few exercises (10 and 23) where you had to translate words, you need to know these for your test too! For example the words ‘reserveren’ or ‘bouwwerk’. Remember: know the words from your book!
The other translation exercise is about the sentences you have to study. You can find them in exercise 20 but also check A96-A98 (p. 43-45) or click on the link Unit 2 – sentences!

is this unit’s grammar presentation.


Exercise 5 in your workbook is about telling time. I’ve added a few clocks to my website. Study them carefully and know how to write out the times: in words! I promise, there will be an exercise in your test about this!
You can find your numbers (in words) under E114 (p. 217) or click here.


In exercise 19 someone gave directions. In 20 and 21 it’s also about pointing the right way. In your test you need to give directions, so you have to know lots of prepositions that have to do with place, for example: cross, pass…
Check out E27 (p. 160-163 HB)  or click here en here.

Make sure you finish all of your exercises before you can take the test!

Take out your headphones or earbuds and click on this link here to do the exercise. Also do the exercise below!

Make sure you’re able to tell the time in words – not just numbers…!

Word Order

Most of the time it is best to place time at the end of your sentence!!!

Try out a wordorder exercise here and here.


How to make questions? (But also: whowhatwherewhen and why…)

Check this out:

The basic rule for asking questions is that you invert the order of the subject and the first auxiliary verb. Here are a few examples:

  • It is raining. = Is it raining?
  • She can speak English. = Can she speak English?
  • He was cycling fast. = Was he cycling fast?

If there is no form of to be (am/is/are), or the word ‘can’, you have to use a form of ‘to do’.

  • You speak fluent Dutch. = Do you speak fluent Dutch?
  • She lives in London. = Does she live in London?
