This is going to be a rather long post, so if you are busy or don't feel like reading, please skip it.
I have a bunch of Dutch friends on the internet! They all speak, or at least write, such amazing English.
I decided that since they knew my language, I could strengthen the friendships by learning some of theirs.
Also, I am totally blind, so my computer talks to me using electronic speech. I am quite hard of hearing, but I can still hear the computer.
Imagine a speech synthesizer, programmed to speak English, trying to pronounce Dutch!!! :laugh:
It is extremely funny, and this made me more interested in learning Nederlands.
I am so glad to be a nieuwkomer on this forum.
As for my username, the phrase eet smakelijk always makes me think of somebody smacking their lips over a good meal so it makes me
I speak English as my mothertongue, French as a second language learned in school although I have forgotten a lot of French. I also learned a bit of Latin and a tiny tiny tiny bit of German.
I love languages and find Dutch to be very interesting, difficult to pronounce, and hard to remember the grammar rules. lol
Thank you, Bieneke (hope I spelled your name right) for making this site.
I have a question; not sure what forum it should go in...
What does the description of the forum for practicing Dutch say? The only part I think I understood was "don't be afraid to make mistakes" or something like that.
Thanks again for making this site! It is fun to chat with people who like languages or need to learn Dutch.
At your next meal,
