Dank u, Bieneke. :)

Dat is heel goed.

Laat weet me, als mijn oefeningen niet goed zijn. Het macht verstand te mij, maar het macht verwarren te andere mensen zijn.

Let me know if my excercies are not good. It might make sense to me, but it might be confusing to other people.

Dank u weer. Thank you again. :)

Dag Leeuw,

Ik heb al je oefeningen gedaan en ze zien er prima uit. De open vragen zijn wel heel moeilijk! Veel Engelse voorzetsels kunnen op verschillende manieren worden vertaald. Misschien kun je de Engelse voorzetsels in een zin schrijven, zodat we ze in hun context kunnen zien. Op deze manier is het makkelijker om het correcte Nederlandse voorzetsel te kiezen.

I have finished all your exercises and they look good. The open questions, however, are really hard! Many English prepositions can be translated in different ways. Perhaps you can write the English prepositions in a sentence so that we can see them in their contexts. This way, it is easier to pick the correct Dutch preposition.

"Laat het me (maar) weten als mijn oefeningen niet goed zijn. Het kan voor mij wel duidelijk zijn, maar voor andere is het misschien verwarrend."

It might = 'het kan zijn', 'het is misschien'
To make sense = 'zinvol zijn', 'duidelijk zijn'

Groetjes,
Bieneke

Dag Bieneke, :lol:

Ik zal uw raaden in mijn oefeningen een beetje gemakkelijker volgen maaken. Mijn doel is het grappe en intersante voor mensen te vlaams/nederlands maaken geleeren. Ondertussen werk ik ook bij het worden beter in mijn taalvaardigheden. Ik zal mijn beste proberen. Ook dank u voor uw help in mijn 'passive stem'.


I will follow your advice in making my excercises a little easier. My goal is make it fun and interesting for people to learn flemish/dutch. In the mean time I am also working on getting better in my language skills. I'll try my best. Also thank you for your help in my passive voice.

Tot ziens, Bieneke :)

nieuw oefening

Post by Leeuwin » Sat Sep 16, 2006 12:55 am

Dag Allemaal, :)

Ik heb meer oefeningen. Ga naar 'word order' 'miscellaneous' . Dan je ziet
Write the missing word/words>NO CAPITALS>no punctuation #1
Write the missing word/words>NO CAPITALS>no punctuation #2
Write the missing word/words>NO CAPITALS>no punctuation #3
Write the missing word/words>NO CAPITALS>no punctuation #4

They are not all the same. But they do have the same concept.
They help in idiomatic expressions, using common verbs. I have trouble in these myself so I hope they help you as they helped me. The more you see them, the easier it gets to understand them.

Ik heb een andere oefening. Ga naar 'vocabulary'.
Stadsplattegrond (Town plans) which is the correct word?

Gelukig! Good luck!
tot de volgende keer, Leeuwin :-D

[edit by Bieneke: I appended links to the exercise titles and I moved the exercises to the (newly created) category 'miscellaneous']

Met al die verhalen over piraten dacht ik dat het wel nuttig zou zijn om een oefening te maken over 'piratenwoorden'.
Zo gezegd, zo gedaan.
In de categorie Nouns & articles vind je een nieuwe oefening voor 'de' of 'het' met allemaal woorden die te maken hebben met piraten of schepen:
De or het? 2 - Pirate words
Veel plezier ermee!

Reading all those stories about pirates, I thought it would be useful to make an exercise on 'pirate words'.
No sooner said than done.
In the category Nouns & articles you will find a new exercise on 'de' or 'het' with words that have something to do with pirates or schips.
Enjoy!


Groetjes Joke

PS. Bieneke, waarom staan mijn vragen meestal niet in de volgorde waarin ik ze gemaakt heb? Nu bijvoorbeeld weer precies van achter naar voren :-?

Hoi allemaal. I just created my second exercise. :D/
I hope this link will take you to it:
quiz.php?mode=play&q=87
It is in the misc category and there doesn't seem to be a listing for that on the main page with all the other exercise categories, so I had to click for a list of exercises to get there.
Anyway, this link should work.
Veel succes ermee!
Groetjes,

I've made a new exercise (with the wonderful help and advice of Jila and Joke).

It is called "Don't Take Me Literally" and is under the "Miscellaneous" category.  

The basic idea is to pick the correct meaning for phrases that really can't be translated literally.

I hope you enjoy it!

That was such a fun exercise (quiz.php?mode=play&q=88)! Dat was zo'n leuke oefening! It has already been there for three months but I completely overlooked it.

Bedankt, Janeera.
