The alphabet and its pronunciation
by Leviwosc,

We will start from scratch: The Dutch alphabet contains the same 26 letters as the English alphabet. Listen to the whole alphabet at once: listen or download mp3 download mp3.

The alphabet song is a great way to memorize the Dutch alphabet.

This is how the song goes:

"A, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k, l, m, n, o, p, q, r, s, t, u, v, w, x, y, z, wie doet er mee? Dit zijn de letters van het alfabet. Wie zingt er mee van a tot z?"

Listen to the ABC-lied by six year old Robin or download mp3 download it.

This is what the Dutch alphabet looks like in phonetics (IPA): [a] [be] [se] [de] [e] [ɛf] [ɣe] [ha] [i] [je] [ka] [ɛɫ] [ɛm] [ɛn] [o] [pe] [ky] [ɛɾ] [ɛs] [te] [y] [ve] [ʋe] [ɪks] [ɛi] [zɛt] .

On the next page, you can listen to each letter separately (if you have a slow internet connection, this page may take some time load).

In the video to your left, YouTube publisher Leviwocs takes you through the pronunciation of the Dutch letters and letter combinations in 8 minutes.
