Is this really used the same way in Dutch as in English? I'm always wary when I see the same idiom in two languages, regardless of how closely related they are.
A valid question, but in this case it's 100% the same :-)
The pronounciation of words could be much clearer. For example, this sounds like the person is saying "Ik ben een ope... boek." the n in open isn't clear.
That is correct Dutch pronunciation. You can pronounce the "n" clearly, but you don't have to.
I put "Ik ben een open boek,'" accidently hitting the apostrophe, and i got the question completely wrong! DL shouldn't mark people wrong when they accidently type an apostrophe after a word!
