EEN VOORWOORD TOT DE LEERLINGEN
Wat is het doel van dit boek? Hoe moet het gebruikt worden?
Als je een opstel maakt, of een brief schrijft, moet je je aandacht verdelen over verschillende zaken: de inhoud, de compositie, de zinsbouw, de woordkeus, de spelling, enz. Het zou je taak aanzienlijk vereenvoudigen, als je niet aan de vorm van de woorden hoefde te denken. Gelukkig is dat nu al grotendeels het geval, maar er zijn nog altijd een aantal woorden, waarbij je even moet denken; dat zijn je struikelblokken, de verstoorders van je gedachten. Ze zijn van tweeërlei aard: werkwoordsvormen, waarvan je de spelling wel weet, maar waarvan je de juiste vorm alleen kunt vaststellen, als je de situatie overziet, waarin ze voorkomen (bijv. hij vertelt, maar: hij heeft verteld). De een overziet die situatie vlugger dan de ander, maar door bepaalde oefeningen te maken, die daar zorgvuldig voor zijn samengesteld, kan deze snelheid aanzienlijk verhoogd worden. Woorden waarvan je de spelling niet precies weet. Je twijfelt. Soms schrijf je zo'n woord even op en kijkt 'hoe het staat'. Die overpeinzingen moesten niet nodig zijn. Daardoor raak je de draad van je verhaal kwijt: je vergist je in de zinsbouw of het goede woord ontschiet je. Daarom moeten ook die struikelblokken opgeruimd worden.
EN DAT KAN!
Want het zijn er heus niet zo veel. Je weet alleen niet welke het zijn. Als je dat wist, kon je die vijand gemakkelijk de baas worden. In dit boek zijn twee soorten oefeningen opgenomen: oefeningen in het automatiseren van de werkwoordsvormen. Dit zijn de oneven oefeningen, dus die op de linkerpagina staan, oefeningen, die ten doel hebben jouw struikelblokken te vinden. Ze bevatten alle struikelblokken, die in de loop van vele jaren bij ruim 1000 leerlingen geconstateerd zijn. Als je deze oefeningen op de voorgeschreven wijze maakt, zul je de werkwoordsvormen veel vlotter zonder fouten schrijven en je struikelblokken vinden en (het klinkt wat vreemd) . . . kwijtraken.

Howard Hibbard The Metropolitan NMuseum of Art in New York is one of the world's great rivaling the British Museum in London and the Louvre in Paris.

Outstanding among these collections are the Renaissance works and the French Impressionist and Post-Impressionist paintings. American art, twentieth-century art, musical instruments, arms and armor, and costumes are also strongly represented here. In addition, the Metropolitan Museum of Art possesses one of the world's most complete collections of ancient Egyptian art, important collections of early Mesopotamian art, Greek and Roman art from all periods, Early Christian and Byzantine art, Islamic art, including textiles, manuscripts and ceramics, and oriental art from China, India, Japan, Korea, and Southeast Asia.

On a dike close to the village of Fijnaart, in the South of the Netherlands, a truck has broken down. Sendogan, the Turkish driver, is trying to repair it when he notices a young woman standing on the other side of the road.
Once he has got his vehicle going again, he drives it to the required destination and he's ready fo the weekend. There's just one place in the whole area where you can go out: the Kopermolen, located in that same Fijnaart. That's where he sees that same young woman again and,. . .

Auteur: A. Polat

In this book, the half-Turkish, half-Dutch photographer Ahmet Polat goes to Turkey in search of his roots. He reconstructs the journey his father undertook as a truck driver, attracted to the Netherlands in the 1970s in search of a better future.

Polat realizes how uncommon the situation was for his parents in the 1970s, who met in the only place of entertainment in a tiny village in the south of the Netherlands. He had seen her previously standing on a dike, whre his truck had broken down earlier that day. In the nightclub, he approaches her in his broken German and then feel the spark between them.

Not long afterwards, Diana's parents are sitting in an airplane for the first time in their lives, heading for Turkey, anxiously wondering what's in store for them. Given the situation, it is quite surprising that they see no reason for concern, and the language isn't a problem either. Without being able to exchange a word, there is an immediate mutual understanding: two hardworking families, laborers who, despite the differences in age, religion, and origin, only want the best for their children. Ahmet Polat now understands that all those years in which he had sought acceptance in life, he had been focusing on the wrong people. In 1976, before he had even been born, both his grandfathers had taken care of that for him already.

. . . Neither here nor there. . . places the contemporary feelings and discussions concerning labor migration, cultural differences, minorities and identity in an original and refreshing light.
