Hoi Raquel, I'm just starting to learn, too. I suggest studying at least something every day, even if it just reviewing something you already learned. Lots of review is important, anyway. If you have a whole day and you feel like studying all day, go for it! Ik woon in Amerika, en ik heb geen mensen...

I understand more every day. 8) I see from your earlier posts that you are blind, so my method of reading along while listening might not work for you, unless you can print it out in Braille. You're right, though, that the time is the easiest thing to understand. The next easiest is the weather. I t...

Eet,

I know so little Dutch right now, that even if they spoke very, very slowly, it wouldn't help. Studying the text helps more.

Dutch media (from "Why Dutch")

Where can I find Radio Nederland? I don't care if I don't understand anything. Maybe I will someday if I listen a lot. I don't know much about poetry. I've only written one poem in my life, and it was so clever, I thought I should quit while I was ahead. However, I once wrote a palindrome in three l...

Hoi EetSmakelijk,

Knowing languages, even a little, is like having magical power, don't you think?

By the way, I am just a beginner in Dutch.

For fun, of course!

I love learning languages. My brain seems to crave it. The two languages I have studied seriously - actually taken classes - were Spanish and Greek. However, I have casually looked at Japanese, French, Italian, Russian, Chinese, and now Dutch. Of course I am not very good in some of these languages....
