Which adjective gets the -e ending if there are two adjectives next to each other? For example would, "... to the good old days" be 'naar de goed oude dagen' or 'naar de goede oude dagen'? Also if anyone can guess what song that line was from I'll give you 5 lingots

It would be: 'de goede oude dagen', so it doesn't change when there are more adjectives next to each other, I don't know the song though:-) It sounds like a song from Adele Bloemendaal 'de goeie oude tijd', but I don't think you mean that because it's quite old...

Also can you explain to me when to use nog steeds, nog wat, and so on? I'm on adverbs right now and I'm starting to freakout

Hi, you may have found the answer by now, but to be sure: 'nog steeds' = still (as in 'Ik woon nog steeds in Nederland' = I still live in the Netherlands) and 'nog wat' = more (as in 'Mag ik nog wat kaas?' = Can I have more cheese?)

If you have more questions, don't hesitate to ask me. :-)

I finished the tree and I'm still freaking out from the "steeds" ..

But nog steeds is "still". The " steeds" in this case adds nothing.

And "nog wat" is "still some (more of something)

Nog niet is " not yet"

Nog nooit "never before"

Hope that helps

Dutch is kinda like Chinese, you can write it, understand it, but in the end you still have no idea what the individual words mean (chinese characters have multiple meanings most of the time)
