You might feel less alone in the Dutch forum.

I am learning it as well, though slowly. I like the sound of it. What made you choose Dutch?

I was born in the Netherlands and when I was young I moved to different countries and settled in the UK. I never learned dutch and I wanted to learn and hopefully visit the country again. Also how do you get to the dutch forum?

Since this post is about Dutch, could you move it to the Dutch forum? More of the people who are interested in Dutch will see it there, and it will help keep this forum un-cluttered. Don't delete it and create a new one, just click edit, and change the topic from Duolingo to Dutch. Thanks :)

Thanks for letting me know about this. I'll do it . I'm new to the site I don't really understand it too well.

I'm currently learning German. I hear Dutch is similar. May not be the language I tackle next, but it is there on my list, so eventually I'll be learning it :)

I took German in school and I am now teaching myself Dutch. For me at least, Dutch is easier than German... it's almost a cross between German and English at least as far as vocabulary is concerned. But, Dutch is easier than German as there are only two genders and much much less inflection of words. The word order, however, is definitely Germanic, but still different than German.

Actually there are very few differences in word order between German and Dutch. If you stick to German word order in Dutch, you will be fine in the vast majority of cases, in some cases it will be 'German-like, but correct' and in even fewer cases Dutch people will consider your word order unusual or wrong.

It's on my list. As soon as I'm done with Ukrainian, I might get back to it. I love it though.
