Welcome to IYNO Lenny! And also in Dutch :huh: :

Welkom op dit forum

fext

Dank u wel!

I didn't expect this forum to be a place to practice Dutch, but that's great!

I still need some more work before I can hold a conversation though.

I can usually get through the checkout alright at this point.

The local Dutch society was actually just revived in my city, so I'll be going to that this weekend!

Cool! Btw a lot of people say also that Dutch is a diffecult language ;)

Really? I've heard the opposite (for English speakers). It's the closest language to English other than Frisian.

The pronunciation and spelling of words seems to make a lot more sense than English most of the time.

I am trying to learn Flemish though, and most online resources are for Dutch Dutch haha.

I was watching some kids and I was trying to tell them to walk (loop), and they always would just run faster. I found out the other day that lopen is to run in Flemish haha. It makes much more sense now.

It's closer than Frisian indeed. As a Dutchman I can't even make anything out of the Dutch variation :tongue:. (Which is common in the northern region).

Yeah some words have totally different meanins in Flamish, that's kinda funny sometimes

Yeah, it's interesting for me, because as a non native speaker, I pretty much can choose my accent. Do I want to go with West-Flanders and have a "g" that sound just like an "h" (like Gent sounds like Hent), or a harsher "g".

Right now I seem to flip between a middle-of-the-road Belgian "g" and something harsher depending on what feels more natural in the word, but i'd like to get a bit more consistent.

I also didn't realize that some people make the "r" sound at the back of the throat like the French. Some also do the French "r" at the beginning of words then do the tongue trill for in the middle/ end.

I've been using the front "r", but sometimes I roll it too long instead of just a quick tap.

Yes there are many ways, and it also differs e.g. between countryside and urban areas. Anyway, maybe we should start a topic about it :laugh:
