Dutch Dictionary Recommendations?
I'm going to get a Dutch Dictionary but I can't choose which one! I would like a portable/mini dictionary so I can carry it around everywhere. Please Help!
Hm, I always use van Dale, but that's a big one.. xD (Or you can use their site.) But they have a pocketsized dictionary as well.
Ah! I see that van Dale even has a dictionary for people who learn Dutch as a second language. xD (ISBN13: 9789460770623)
About hyves, it's gone. About a year ago, since everyone is on facebook. As far as I know, we don't really have a social media thing for Dutch people only. Not a lot people use twitter (at least, none of the people I know use it), so I'd stick with facebook.
I bought the van dale dictionary with images and for French/Dutch/English/German/Spanish. It was around €20, here's a link: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Dale-Large-Picture-Dictionary-Dutch-English-French-German-Spanish/dp/9460770673/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1422924782&sr=8-1&keywords=van+dale+dictionary+english+french+dutch
Just search for "Van dale groot beeldwoordenboek". For me it was nice to use as i could find some words i knew in another language that I didn't know how to translate. It's organised well with de/het articles and masculine/feminine/neuter for other languages.
For me, the pictures were nice to improve my vocabulary and was lighter reading material than text heavy dictionaries. But it's not portable/mini.
