Dear Dutch language learners,

let me ask your recommendation: What do you read on the net to improve your Dutch language level?

Thanks a lot for your input in advance,

Ledo.

I'm Dutch so guessing OK levels is hard, but the newspapers for teenagers (https://www.sevendays.nl/) and for kids (https://www.kidsweek.nl/) are pretty nice ot read. Not reading, but the Sesame street in the Netherlands is really good (and one of the only ones allowed to write their own scripts instead of dub/reuse American scripts: https://sesamstraat.ntr.nl/site/index.php). Some cute stories written by kids for kids: http://www.kinderverhalen.nl/. This site reads Miffy stories to you: https://www.nijntje.nl/

I read De Volkskrant and have found this site https://www.netinnederland.nl/en/media/alles.html with its sub-titled videos particularly useful. I also found a lot of Peppa Pig videos in Dutch on You Tube - unusual viewing for an adult but how do you suppose Dutch children learn?

Thanks a lot for the suggestions. I really like that your recommended link contains tons of videos with subtitles.

Thanks a lot,

https://jeugdjournaal.nl/

It's a newspaper for kids/teenagers, so the language level is not very advanced.

Hi Zkrez,

It seems ok - easy to read and easy to use the site.

Thanks a lot,

It's not really for beginners, but if you want to challenge yourself and learn words that are often used in a serious conversation about politics, economy, lifestyle, etc... You should check out standaard.be. It never has grammatical or spelling errors so you're safe there! But only read it when you're confident you've become a lot better in Dutch and want to discover a higher level of Dutch. The best of luck to you!

In 'de speld' you read satirical articles (www.despeld.nl)

Btw if you have any question about the Dutch language ask away.

It's so kind. Thanks a lot for this possibility.

I remembered another source:

https://nl.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Etalage

These are the high-quality articles from the NL Wikipedia.

    I highly recommend the kidsweek nieuws. https://www.kidsweek.nl/ Their articles are just the right length for beginning to read, I've picked up lots of new words.

    I love browsing https://www.reddit.com/r/thenetherlands/ as for videos, I can recommend Het Klokhuis https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1rz0CNVZBUAlnk1xrlrjAw - one can learn a lot from it, not only Dutch language!

    I have this nice DutchReader extension on my PC internet browser, everyday it gives you a selection of articles to read and you can double click on every word to get its translation, it's great. It also gives a small "task" where you have to re-use 3 words from the article you just read.
