Dutch Spongebob!

If you like Spongebob, you can watch recent episodes here: http://www.spongebob.nl/

Just thought I'd let you Dutch learners know, in case you might find that a fun way to practice listening! There's games too! (For whatever reason, Squidward's name is Octo)

i think in every language squidward's name is different. in german his name is Thadäus which is weird cause it is pronounced tadeh'us but in german grammar it should be tadois :D

"In german grammar it should be tadois"

Err, what? 1. That has nothing to do with grammar, 2. The spelling of the name is perfectly fine and it is pronounced correctly.

You are right, but in this special case, the syllables are separated like this: Thad-dä-us. That's why you pronouce it "ä-u", not "oi".

I'm JUST beginning, and this is great for getting some of the sounds in my ears. I just wish I could find a way to turn on Dutch subtitles so I could create the mapping from written sounds to aural sounds!
