Re: Sentences of Spring :)

Hi Quetzal, BrutallyFrank and Bert,Thanks for your translations and explanations. I agree that "pink foliage" would be better described as trees with pink leaves instead of the other way. "Kronkelende" in my opinion does sound sweeter than "bochtige". Somehow the latter reminds me of the word "botch...

Sentences of Spring :)

I have written a few sentences in English and then I attempted to accurately translate them into Dutch sans google translate. Would appreciate corrections/changes. Thank you in advance. 1. I was strolling along the river one sunny afternoon when I came across this sculpture. Perhaps deep in contempl...

Re: I am university educated & so frustrated with inburgering!

I can understand the frustration with the Inburgering system too. It happened to me, but in the end I just went with the flow. In the end, I saw it more as a socializing time, not for study. Make new friends from different cultures, or just go there to look at how other people live their lives - the...

Re: My Experience and Tips - Inburgering Examen

Hi Shinshin, In my case the Inburgering Exam was subsidized by the City Council. I think it would depend on the individual regional gemeente (city councils). Regulations change every year and some years they allocate subsidies and some years they do not. For the Assessments, I was allowed to do it i...

E-mail to a Dutch friend

Hi everyone, I would like to have an e-mail friend with whom I can correspond in Dutch with; maybe once a week or so or more. It's with no obligations attached to answer speedily. If you're a native Dutch speaker, it would suffice that major corrections in my writing are made and the minor ones can ...

Re: Staatsexamen I - How to use the Computer?

Hi everyone, I apologize for the late reply as I did not check the forum earlier. To Bert, I will not be doing the Staatsexamen II. Rather I will be studying on my own. It does not matter what my results for the Staatsexamen I is. I think one exam is sufficient and I am in no hurry to speed through ...

Re: Staatsexamen I - How to use the Computer?

Now that I have done the Staatsexamen I, I shall attempt to answer my own questions in case anyone should be interested :) The website http://www.cve.nl/item/wat_is_het_staatsexamen_nt2 does not address the issues I was concerned about. (1) For the Reading and Listening modules, it is possible to ch...

My Experience and Tips - Inburgering Examen

I was inspired to write this after reading JDJazz's post on the Staatsexamen I which helped me with tips and pointers for the exam. I will now attempt to write one based on my experience with the Inburgering exam a few months ago, which I passed. Firstly I would say based on personal experience, the...

Staatsexamen I - How to use the Computer?

I will be going for my Staatsexamen I next week. I have been self-studying for the past month. Although I have received a pamphlet for the exam, it does not explain into detail. I hope that anyone who has done the exam recently will be kind enough to inform me on how it goes. Thank you very much! I ...

Re: Trial Exam 2

Hoi Ngonyama, Dank u wel voor de correctie. Ik waardeer dat heel veel. Ik heb de hele boek van woordvorgorde gelezen en hand gekopiered. Daarom ik was beetje dissapointed met de zin vogorde. In case the Dutch does not sound the way it should... Thank you for the corrections. I appreciate that a lot....

Found : Good Book on Sentence Order

Hi everyone, I have found a book from the library with short, precise explanation on Dutch sentence order. It is called Woordvolgorde van de Nederlandse taal by Maarja Paalman. I'm half way through the book and everything seems clearer now. I hope that everyone learning Dutch sentence order would fi...

Re: Trial Exam

Dear Bert and Quetzal, Thank you very much for the corrections. It must have took some time, and I appreciate it a lot. I am quite in a daze when it comes to sentence structures and conjugations of verbs, therefore I will memorize the sentences as I do not trust my own judgment at this point. If the...
