I think I'm really making progress
Yesterday I had guests over, and while we were sitting in my library we began discussing the Religious Wars in Europe. I was enjoying the discussion, until I tried to remember a certain word. All I could think of was the Dutch word Beeldenstorm for the concept. Later, I looked in a Dutch to English dictionary, and realized that the word I had been looking for was "iconoclasm".
So, while my English is evidently digressing, I think I'm really making progress with my Dutch.
This makes me smile. I occasionally do similar things, but with French! :)
And something similar just happened to me today...I was working on writing in Dutch and then when I went to write out the English translation, there were one or two sentences I just could not get to word as nicely in English as they were in Dutch! :P Funny how that works...
Went to the Netherlands and Germany recently and when we were in Germany I kept wanting to say Dutch phrases at them! "Goeden avond! Dank je wel!" Brainwashing by Duolingo. :D
