What resources do you guys use on your daily routine?

Hi people,

I don't ask this because I usually google "Resources for language xx Duolingo" and find a lot of interesting posts already. But for Dutch somehow this isn't working. Anyways, I'm kind of new to the "Dutch world" and was wondering which websites you recommend/use on a daily basis for grammar? youtube channels (subtitled)? dictionary/translator? children's book/short stories? news website with short texts? (equivalent to the tagesschau.de)

Looking forward to your answers :)

Cheers

My best advice to you is to find a Dutch person, force them into friendship, then chat with them every waking moment of your life.

If you have finished the German tree, you'll be able to understand what they type to you and only have to look up a couple words. I knew past tense a couple weeks before I learned it on Duolingo this way lol.

So for YouTube channels...

  • EnzoKnol (new videos daily, like 15 minutes long, GREAT practice)
  • Disfordazzle
  • Theaumes
  • DitisMilan

For websites, go on Facebook and like RTL Nieuws. You'll love it. The stories are actually interesting and sometimes absolutely hilarious!

Also a HUGE thing that will help you is listening to music and memorizing lyrics. Here's a playlist with all my favorite Dutch songs on it... http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLE632nm_xxYJLtF1NuJ4cjMwq1wJy6uo1 (This is a living playlist, constantly being added to)

VEEL GELUK :D

Oh but really find Dutch people and force yourself to speak Dutch with them through writing. That's what will help you learn the language super fast.

BTW the speaker on Duolingo doesn't really sound like Dutch people do... So listen to lots of videos and music! I couldn't understand any music at first, but I listened anyway, and now I can pretty much understand all songs if they aren't sung with a heavy accent and word slurring. :D

"force them into a relationship" haha I like your enthusiasm and hope it's contagious :D Thank you for the support. I actually just want to learn it to be able to read newspapers and get a better understanding of Belgian politics. here's a song for you: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WDFuVWSX9N8 :)

Oh, too bad! Apparently this video is not available from the uploader in my country, USA. I hope DogePamyuPamyu can see it.

Because I heard the pronunciation in Dutch Duolingo was misleading, I switched it off and started practicing with other audio sources. My favorite is a podcast called "Laura Speaks Dutch": http://www.lauraspeaksdutch.info/

It's 5-10 minute episodes that focus on common practical phrases and idioms. I need Duolingo for the grammar but Laura Speaks Dutch really helps me understand the pronunciation. The website has a blog post for each episode spelling out the phrases so I can match them up.

(Despite the title, Laura is not the one speaking Dutch. The podcast was started to teach someone named Laura to speak Dutch.)
