Grammar in a nutshell
Would like & Would love I would like to see a movie. I would love to see a movie. What’s the difference? Would like = zou graag willen Would love = zou HEEL graag willen... Behind would like or would love, you put the word ‘to’ and the infinitive (hele werkwoord). You can also write: ’d for would. I’d like to see a movie. I’d love to see a movie. How do you choose? Well, it’s more or less your own interpretation...
Imperatives We can use the imperative to give an order. Take that chewing gum out of your mouth. Stand up straight. Give me the details. We can use the imperative to give instructions. Open your book. Take two tablets every evening. Take a left and then a right. There are a few other uses for the imperative, but these are the ones you need to know right now. Don’t want someone to do something? Put don’t in front |of your verb! Don’t smoke!
Got it? Excellent! Next up:
Present Simple To talk about things that are happening in the present!
1.When something is generally true. For example: The sky isn’t green. Water boils at 100°C. 2. More or less permanent situations. For example:She works in a bank. They love coffee. 3.Habits or things we do often. For example:I play tennis every Tuesday. How often do you study English? 4. You also use the present simple to talk about the future... For example: Class starts at 9 o’ clock. Our train leaves at eleven. Present Simple

Present Continuous To talk about things that are happening in the present! Things that are going on at the moment.
