Question 9 might be hard for Belgians and question 12 makes a really weird sentence

Love phrase 13 from part 2, the trains never ride here

Got 2 questions wrong: 5 of part 2, and 8 of part 4.

I don't agree with question 5 of part 2, you can see it in 2 ways. The one I choose, and the one they want us to choose.

What would you say if we could make
something amazing

yeah, I know quite a few Belgians who'd say 9 wrong.

What other way is there to see question 5 of part II?

Oh, I see it now. But they never expect you to replace a word by an entirely different word.

I had most problems with question 14 of part 2. It seems like such a strange sentence.

a little note
part 1 enkel is a perfect word in the sentence
and of part two question 14 is wrong, it's not ik heeft
and er moest geen ziekenwagen komen, it's perfectly fine to see te as wrong!

Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams

maybe the last sentence sounds a little weird hoefde en te sounds better

A man may fight for many things. His country, his friends, his principles, the glistening ear on the cheek of a golden child. But personally, I'd mud-wrestle my own mother for a ton of cash, an amusing clock and a sack of French porn.
