Anyone else hear something like "maxst" for "maakt"? The pronunciation is very weird.

I keep hearing macht (Dutch and German word for 'power').

very weak "ch" there, besides I hear the "subtle" K but it's there

I wrote soap in this sentence. Two times. I don't know what to do with myself.

Why would "The man prepares the soup." be wrong?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/languagepotato

that would be: "de man bereidt de soep voor."

I heard maarkt

"de man" is also used for husband but it is not accepted. Is that true only for Flemish ?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/El2theK

Man only is used for husband in combination with a possessive.

  • Zijn/Haar man - His/Her husband
  • De man - The man

... cos he's --the- man-
