I think my French should be good enough to attempt that, but unfortunately I have exams and the like coming up, so I can't do it anytime soon. If there's something you don't understand, though, feel free to post and ask, or to send me a private message (in English or in French).

We also have a few Belgian Francophone members who speak very good Dutch, like Arnaud, so they might also be able to help (either with answering questions or with translating the grammar).

En tout cas, bienvenue et bonne chance!

But I guess I can give a quick summary of the tenses, in case that helps. ;)


Onvoltooid tegenwoordige tijd - simple present - indicatif présent

Voltooid tegenwoordige tijd - present perfect - passé composé (mais souvent pas utilisé de la même façon - en néerlandais on utilise beaucoup plus l'imparfait qu'en français)

Onvoltooid verleden tijd - simple past - imparfait

Voltooid verleden tijd - past perfect - plusqueparfait

Onvoltooid toekomende tijd - simple future - futur proche

Voltooid toekomende tijd - future perfect - futur antérieur

Onvoltooid verleden toekomende tijd - conditional - conditionnel

Voltooid verleden toekomende tijd - past conditional - conditionnel passé

Voltooid deelwoord - past participle - participe passé

Onvoltooid deelwoord - present participle - participe présent



Comme tu vois, le néerlandais n'a pas de subjonctif (hormis quelques cas particuliers qui sont assez rares).
