Podcast 21 is Hier

Would you like to publish your own sound files? As a Dutch native speaker, you can create sound files to help Dutch learners. If you are studying Dutch, you can record your voice to practice your pronunciation -- and ideally, let the rest of us enjoy it too. :)

Het is hier. It is here.
Podcast 21! :D
http://www.dutchgrammar.com/en/index.php?n=POD.00021
It is not yet on the main page with the list of podcasts, but I just couldn't wait and had to announce it. This direct link works!
Bedankt Bieneke for making the page and putting the English and Dutch texts in such lovely order. :D
Bedankt Joke for correcting my grammar and fixing het geluidsbestand!
I wrote this thing in April and only recorded it last week. I've kept it a secret for this long! :P
Veel luisterplezier!

Can you get your dragon friend to eat the letter 'r'?  I can do without it.

Bieneke, I tried to make a poll but Dutch has so many sounds that I received the following error message:
Je hebt te veel keuzemogelijkheden opgegeven.
(You have given too many choice possibilities.)
I am going to ask them that people simply reply in this topic and list the letter they would like the dragon to remove. It can be any letter or any vowel combination (ei, oei, etc.). It could also be consonants, sch, gr, etc.
There are a couple other choices.
I don't speak Dutch so sounds aren't a problem
Dutch sounds are beautiful, leave them as is and tell that dragon to get lost! :P

My answer to this question is the last answer. I find many of the sounds difficult, but Dutch would not be Dutch without them.

No, it wouldn't be Dutch without the 'g' or 'ij'.  The dragon might want to just take a little nibble out of 'sch' however, so that it reduces it to more like 'sk'.  I get nervous when I have to do a 'sch' because it comes out ok only 1 out of 3 or 4 times.

What do you mean you don't speak Dutch? Who was that reading the story?  :?

Well it was Es's evil twin  :eek:  You know the Dutch one  8)

Hmm, would it be to much to ask Mr Dragon to munch on any sounds that sound like I'm coughing up a furball or clearing my throat?  :-?

/figures I'll just get em all at once, gotta keep it simple.

I'm sure Mr. Dragon would appreciate a bag of Bahlsen's ABC cookies/biscuits (probably shouldn't mention any brand names here, but they are the only ones I know... and they ARE delicious). No IJ's included, however.

:-D

I think some punctuation will clear up Es' text:
Es wrote:There are a couple other choices, like:
''I don't speak Dutch so sounds aren't a problem''  or
''Dutch sounds are beautiful, leave them as is and tell that dragon to get lost!''  
Can you please send your dragon to England and let it eat the a?

Sorry about the confusing text. :oops:
Bedankt Joke voor het fixen. ;)
Joke means the a in "bad", not all a's.
The answer is nee, we Engelstaligen are very attached to thAt sound. :P

The dragon may eat any Dutch sound he likes, if he also eats the English ʊ in words like cook, book, soot, etc. :P

Oh that's what it was.  I like Jeff's "evil twin" theory, too. ;)

It seems everyone has their letters they wish would disappear.  That dragon is going to need some TongbrekerThee  by the time he gets done with our requests.

"After a long day of letter eating and fire breathing, I like to relax with a cup of Tongbreker Thee."
