English <-> Dutch Dictionary

First of all, I would like to thank everyone who contributed to the Dutch course! I am extremely thankful for all of the hard work they put into making the course what it is.

I am so excited to start learning Dutch! My German learning was primarily out of interest, but I will actually be able to use my Dutch to an extent because I have a friend who is a native speaker of Afrikaans, so this will help me in learning Afrikaans as well.

While learning German, I always like to have leo.org open, primarily for looking up the gender and plural form of every new noun I learn. Now, I would love to have a resource similar to this for Dutch to help me learn the plural forms of nouns.

Does anyone have a recommendation?

Woordenlijst, hands down. :)
It's the one we, course builders and native speakers, use as well, a website by the organization that publishes the official Dutch spelling book every few years.

It, a.o., gives you the plural forms of words and indicates whether a 'de' or 'het' article has to be used. ^^

Now this isn't a bilingual dictionary... let's see which bilingual dictionary I can find...vertalen.nu seems easy to use. :)

Thank you so much! That's exactly what I need. You're probably one of the most helpful people I know. :)

Thanks for the tip Lavinae, I was still messing around with Van Dale, but as soon as you get to less common words (the ones I tend to look up as a native speaker…), you get the annoying buy a subscription to find this word message.
