To learn Dutch well, you need massive amounts of input. All this input helps you better understand the language and to imitate sounds. Wouldn’t it be great if you could deal with Dutch tongue twisters and no longer be asked Where are you from? Wouldn’t it be impressive if you could say something like
De zon schijnt! Terrasje pakken?
Being in the Netherlands makes it easy to expose yourself to spoken language. But what if you’re immersed in a cacophony of strange words, phrases, sentences? What if that feels like drowning? Take a few steps back and forget the talking and understanding. Start studying sounds only. Listening to Dutch songs and spoken Dutch in the media are 2 highly effective ways to deal with impossible Dutch sounds.
