Zij, hen and hun (Or: Check this one out)

I just heard about a fun website that talks about the differences between zij, hen and hun. Well, fun if you like Dutch grammar…

Hoe zat het ook alweer met zij, hen en hun?

I have tried to explain the difference before, back when I was actively in Dutch classes in what feels like a long time ago. But I must admit this website does the trick a lot better!

Comic above is from Fokke & Sukke. The grammar doesn’t translate well into English, unfortunately. But the student is asking the teacher if instead of “Atilla the Hun” it is “Atilla the zij”, which makes sense if you consider the website above is trying to teach the difference between zij, hen and hun.
