Re: het woordvolgorde van de werkwooden die een zin eind

Oh boy, a quiz! I'll try this and Cathleen can try it without reading my answers if she wants. I'll give you a few examples and you can tell me which one you think it should be (you don't have to translate the entire sentence, there are some that we would phrase rather differently so straightforward...

Re: Speaking of...

Thanks, that was just what I was looking for. I suspected it would have "spreken" and "over", but didn't know if I needed anything else, and never would have guessed that I needed the past participle.

Speaking of...

How can I say "speaking of" in Dutch?

As in, we are already on the subject of something, so here is more on that subject. For example,

"Speaking of houses, did you see that new house on the corner?"

Blijf lekker meedoen

"Blijf lekker meedoen"

Wat betekent dit?

Something like "Keep up the good work"?

Re: Why Dutch?

Beygir, Wow, what a crazy dream. If you are interested in druids and Dutch, you should watch Nickelodeon's Het Huis Anubis en de Vijf van het Magische Zwaard . It is a children's TV program about a group of kids who live in a boarding house and are needed for druid rituals. You may be able to find t...

Kwebbelhoekjedag

November 10 has been designated Kwebbelhoekjedag. This means we are going to try to get everyone interested in using the "chat" function on the forum. Please visit the kwebbelhoekje (chat) on that day and practice your Dutch.

I just found some tickets for something that I reserved a long time ago on November 9, so could we start chatting or have a second day to chat in het kh on November 10 instead?

Sorry about asking to change the date.

Cathleen
Geen probleem. Nov 10 is better for me anyway.

Re: Does anyone use chat?

I don't know about time since everyone is in different time zones. I can't do it at work, so I will probably be late...or early. O.K. I can check by 3 p.m. and keep checking after 4 p.m., too since people may still be at work. I have a part-time job right now, and I'm looking for a full-time job, s...

Re: Does anyone use chat?

I nominate November 9th as kwebbelhoekjedag. Maybe November 10 too, in case people cannot make it on the 9th. Try to visit as often and for as long as you can. Maybe I'll see you there.

Groetjes,

Dora

Does the chat function here get much use? For a long time I could not get it to work, but now that I can, there never seems to be anyone chatting when I visit.

Re: Where to start?

I started out reading the grammar section. It may sound boring, but those lessons are extremely well written and Bieneke makes them as exciting as they can be (they are still grammar, after all). How is a Dutch sentence built? If you mean word order, it is actually not much like English. Dutch relie...
