I created a website where you can improve your listening skills with over 1300 native Dutch recordings collected from Tatoeba. You can find more info about it in this post.

Here's the address of the site and a screenshot of me using the Portuguese version:

Looks very neat! Great work. One thing that I didn't get though was how to use the rating system: what is good, what is bad?

1 is supposed to be poor, 5 is great, maybe I should have made it clearer, since it's used differently in different parts of the world. But when you click 5, it shows as 100% in your performance, and 1 shows as 20%, so maybe that makes it obvious.

Great website, I really enjoyed spending some time on it just now. It's such a relief to break listening practice down in to something manageable.

obligatory unsolicited request: keyboard shortcuts!

Thanks. Keyboard shortcuts are my top priority among planned new features since many people have asked for it.

Really cool but too hard for me as a beginner. I'll come back in a few month if I remember ;-)

This is great! I'm not experienced enough for the Dutch but I actually understand the German in most sentences which is pleasing :) 6 years of learning German is paying off lol

Awesome! :) Also so many thanks for helping me discover Tatoeba, I never heard of it. I'm mainly learning Cantonese, and they have a whopping 3000+ sentences up there!!

This is awesome! I'm currently learning Dutch, and listening to it is a lot harder than I thought! I've got a long way to go, granted, I've only just begun six days ago. :)
