Dutch practice Tinycards
I've started making sets of tinycards using the words from duolingo. I have sets for adjectives, singular animals and, food and drink. I've tried to keep the answers short to cut down on typing so they may lack the correct nuance, but i hope they give the right gist.
The link is https://tiny.cards/users/WoollySammoth if anyone wants to try them. If you find a mistake, or a think a definition isn't quite right, let me know and I'll change it.
I'll be adding more sets, and more to the sets as I get round to the fun administrative task of collating more words in super-happy-fun-time spreadsheets...Yay.
Hello, Wooly Sammoth! Just to thank you and let you know that i tried your tiny cards. You've done a "mammoth" amount of work. I was surprised that you put "Youse" for "Jullie" since It doesn't exist. For me it doesn't matter since I just used it to remind me that "Jullie" represents the plural form of "you". For "underwear" you used "onder", but I think it is supposed to be "ondergoed". In any case, bravo!
I couldn't think of another way indicate jullie vs je. I thought if it was a 50/50 guess every time the word "you" came up it would feel annoying for the user.
The part of england I come from, in Lancashire and right on the border of Merseyside, you get a lot of entrenched slang and colloquial dialects (often surprisingly Germanic). "What are youse guys up to?" is a thing you hear spoken. It's obviously not proper English, but that's where it came from. :p
Hallo Wooly. Thank you for sharing your decks. I've also invested time in the same and create a collection based on Tree 2.0 (current version) of the course. You can check it at https://tinycards.duolingo.com/collections/EF2VYBx/duolingo-dutch-course. It is still work in progress. I have a dedicated thread for this initiative, but thought to mention it also on yours if it can save you some time. Since the translations come from an online dictionary, they might not match perfectly the meaning available in the lesson. Please feel free to propose changes to the decks, if necessary.
