"Hoi, hoe gaat het? Goed, dank je."
Translation:Hello, how are you? Fine, thanks.
Looks like duolingo is teaching me how to talk to myself.
"Hi how's it going? Fine, thank you."
With all these "h" sounds I wonder what happens when you have bad breath? Excellent dental care must be a necessity over there. Otherwise you eat onion or garlic and the guy next to you passes out when you ask how his day is. Lol
U is formal when je is you in singular. Basically there is no difference when you read it. But you are not going to say to the president Je bent een appel. That would be rude. You should say : U bent een appel
Dank ju, and dank u sound the same. How can I tell the difference, I know one is formal , but they sound the same when listening and writing
The J sound should clear that up. In the "U" pronunciation there isn't any jay sound.
In the tips and notes it says that: je,ze and we are un-emphasized forms of jij,zijj and wij. What does that mean exactly?
when you're saying "she eats an apple" you can either stress that SHE eats an apple or that she is eats an APPLE. You only use 'zij' in the first situation or in formal situations
