So long and Thanks for all the Dutch!

Hello, I have been taking Dutch since June in preparation for a vacation trip to Belgium (Flanders). I have had a great time learning. While I don't think I am near fluent, especially in speaking, I think I have a good grasp of reading Dutch. I know a bunch of basic phrases which will be helpful. And I have loved the phrases such as De dieren draggen geen klompen, because you never know when that might come in handy.

I leave for Flanders tomorrow for 10 days.,

Thank you for the learning and the fun

And as they say in Bruges

Ik heb zeventien paarse jassen

Correctie: "De dieren dragen geen klompen"

You might like this series of videos, so you know the differences between what's spoken in the Netherlands, and what's spoken in Belgium.

Veel plezier in Belgiƫ! Vergeet niet de Nederlandse plaatsnamen te leren. (Bruges = Brugge)

Have a good time! You should go and visit Brugge. It's a rather small town so it makes for a great day trip, and has some cool architecture. I was there 2years ago and climbed to the top of Bel tower and saw all the places where they filmed the movie "In Bruges" Food was super expensive though, much more than in The Netherlands (at least that was my experience) :)

I spent 5 days in Brugge. It was a great city to walk around in.

One of my favorite cities, always a great meet up with friends when I'm in Europe. :P If you fell in love with Brugge there is a movie called "In Brugges" that will make you feel nostalgic after not having been there for a while.
