Dan said he wanted to start learning Dutch, and I told him about my old thread on Sanex... if anyone remembers it. And so he asked me to start another thread on here... so Dan, some Dutch basics:
Hoi - hello
Goeiedag - Hello/Good day
Goeie morgen - good morning
goeie avond - good afternoon
goeie nacht - good night (but you only say this if someone is going to bed).
Hoe gaat het? - How are you?
goed - good
slecht - bad
you are crazy - jij bent gek (well, could come in handy, knowing the posters on here)!
Well, I've had classes before, and been to Holland 4 times, so I can pronounce it fairly well (so my Dutch friends tell me anyway), but I started off learning in a thread like this, and when I had actual lessons, I found it helped me being able to at least read some Dutch stuff, coz then I could concentrate more on my pronunciation!
