Other resources for intense Dutch learning and an a Discord server.

Pardon me, if this isn't allowed, Ill be happy to remove it, if it isn't.

I am learning Dutch intensively. I am doing it for a number of reasons. 2 being for my boyfriend, and for academic purposes. However, if you are like me, and are looking to intensively learn Dutch, I noticed that combining these few applications/courses WITH Duolingo, helps tremendously.

Drops: https://drops.app.link/ytP2x1A6aV

Drops is a good visual learning activity for 5 mins a day, if you already know words you can put them in an away pile (swipe up) to focus on words you don't know. They have categories and go in depth with the vocabulary. I was able to learn and apply a lot from Drops.

Memrise: (I couldn't find a link)

Memrise unfortunately is heavily focused on monetary ideals, though if you do the first lesson of each section, you might gather quite a bit of words to add to your vocabulary, plus you get access to the full word lists, just cant practice them at all.

Finally, Preply: https://preply.com/en/tutor/104578/

Preply is a paid service where you could hire a tutor, like native speakers to go over Dutch with you. I have tried this service and very much love it. The tutor I had, Frans was professional, and fun to work with. I'll leave his link here, but feel free to look at other tutors if it interests you.

Also, if it fits in your budget, Duolingo plus is an incredible subscription to have, the offline lessons are an incredible bonus, and makes things a lot easier. I'd be lying if I didnt say I like the subscription a lot. I also recommend doing the intense (50xp a day I believe) on Duolingo, and with the combination of the other apps daily, you'll be learning Dutch at an incredible rate.

Discord: https://discord.gg/av4UuZg

If you're interested in smaller servers as there is a very large Discord server for Dutch learning, and speaking Dutch with both learners and natives, as well as learning the different dialects (Flemish only at the moment) and culture.

I really hope this was useful for members :)

Thank you for posting this.

Here's another free app that I've used, and others, especially beginners, might find useful:

Beter Spellen

Four spelling questions a day. Five days a week. All multiple choice. Explanations when you finish. Both a website and an app.

https://www.beterspellen.nl/website/index.php

On the website, click on "Dagelijkse test" to go directly to the calendar. In the app, click on a day in the calendar to open a test.

Despite the name, usually at least one of the daily questions really revolves around conjugation.

There are three levels of difficulty. If you're not a native, the lowest level is probably where you want to start.

I like it because the lessons don't take long, and I have learned some new vocabulary I don't remember seeing (or at least not repeated ad infinitum) on Duolingo, such as "klapschaatsen," "slagroom" or "vraagteken."

Hello, thanks for posting this.

I'm also learning Dutch (In my case Flemish).

Italki is also a good tool for booking some online classes with tutors or teachers.

Success!
