Trying to learn Dutch
« on: February 21, 2013, 07:43:59 am »
I personally love the history of the people of Belgium and the Netherlands and I find it one of the most fascinating regions historically and I've been trying to learn Dutch for some time now but it's proven rather difficult, especially seeing as I have no real resources at my disposal. Could anybody here either help me (even in some small way) learn at least a little bit of Dutch or point me to a book from which I can learn Dutch because I have had absolutely no luck around where I live. Thank you very much in advance!

My native language is English but it's such a boring language in my opinion.

I would recommend using memrise.com. It's free and it works very, very well.

The Netherlands have a lot of history, good to hear you are interested!

Veel succes hiermee! (Good luck with this!)
My plan is to crowdsource a plan.

How can you learn Norwegian if it says in your steamprofile that you are from Norway?

The best way to learn a language is to hear it alot.

I've learned english by basicly playing english games and watching english shows.

Jocam has a point.

We have all kind of rules that make learning dutch really hard for, well, everbody outside the Netherlands or Flanders.
