Not sure I'll ever remember which to use (although I have read that plurals are always de, which helps :-) ). This is a godsend. I've put it on my phone so I can keep it open while I study Dutch on another device (no dropping in and out of the app on the tablet). With few exceptions there appear to be no rules regarding which to use - except for plurals mentioned above - and few, if any, dictionaries tell you which is required. Thank you!
"HET afval" but it saids "DE afval " so you have to be careful. Not 100% correctly!!!!!
This is one of apps I would like to rate for 5 star after a few minutes experienceing.
Nederlands is makkelijkker als je denkt. En met 'De of Het' nog makkelijker. :).
