Can someone tell me when to use 'Onze' and 'Ons' in a sentence and what is the difference between them?
Thanks!

When 'het' is the definite article for a noun, 'ons' should be used. 'Onze' is used when 'de' is the definite article for a noun.

Examples:

'Het huis' -> 'Ons huis'
'De koe' -> 'Onze koe'
'De ramen' -> 'Onze ramen'.
'Het raampje' -> 'Ons raampje'

Hope this helps :)
