Why I love Dutch.

I am aware this is not a question, nor is it a concern. However, I have been on Duolingo over a year and half now, and recently I've gotten back to it. I really enjoy it, I'm a bit young, but that never stops my curiosity for language learning. Dutch is a great language. Most of the forum posts are in Dutch which is very good for immersion. Thanks to the staff team. I just want to thank those who don't get recognized. Keep up the great work and work hard! The Dutch community is great and Amsterdam is incredibly safe from what I hear.

The Dutch team legit like changed my life though to be honest... Because my goal in life is to move to the Netherlands/Germany or so, find an average job and just live as stress-free as possible and enjoy the landscape and country.

So I'd say they really really altered the course of my life, and it allowed me to discover a love for Germanic languages. Literally I wish there was a way to really thank course creators through gifts or something.

I send the Dutch team loving thoughts all the time! And the Dutch learners' community of which Doge is one of the jewels in the crown.

I want to move there too, do you play on an mc server? If so, my ign is _Le_Vex and what server do you play?

Yeah the server I play on is Dutch... It's really fun! I live BUILDING in survival, and this server has a nice survival world with an economy plugin and a shop. I can sell my extra materials and resources for money, then use that money to buy building materials to build stuff. It's really fun! The chat is 100% purely Dutch too. :D

The IP is: play.mcdutchcraft.nl:25565

(The players speak English too, if someone talks to them in English)

Dank je, what is your IGN?

Hallo. Nederlands is een goede taal.

I think taal is language, correct me if I'm wrong.

Anyways, I have fallen in love with Dutch. I've been procrastinating with my Swedish just to learn more Dutch.

My dad came from a long line of Dutch immigrants so I've always been really interested in Dutch. My friend and I started using Duolingo only a few months ago and we love it. We are both pretty young but it's a fun experience. She's learning Italian and I, obviously, Dutch. I'm not that good but I think it's a beautiful language. I really want to go to the Netherlands and visit Fryslan because that's where my family is from.

Good luck with that because in Frisia they speak two languages: Dutch, and Frisian as well. And if they speak Dutch to you, most have an enormous accent.

Hey, are you still taking Dutch? Your language list has no dutch flag....


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

Not anymore, I was, I decided to focus solely on Swedish.
