Dutch Flashcards Needed

First of all I think Duolingo is a great resource for learning a new language. In fact I have stumbled my way to German level 10 and Spanish level 9 but Dutch is becoming a paard of a different kleur. At level 7 my exposure to Dutch vocabulary is becoming considerable and increasingly unmanageable.

Although there are abundant cognates from both English and German, some Dutch words are uniquely Dutch and border on nonsense syllables For the non-native speaker. " Ik heb geen Nederlandse ouders of grootouders" to help practice vocabulary. The "electronic flashcards" which are a part of the German and Spanish courses would be greatly appreciated in the Dutch module.

Hi there! :)

We have asked for these flashcards and Duolingo has assigned this a low-priority feature for a course.
There is nothing more that we can do for you.
As suggested by oles1a, there is a memrise course you can take which does serve to teach you our course's vocab, through flashcards.

Happy learning and thanks for taking our course!

I had a look at Memrise and there is a lot of good material BUT it does not integrate particularly well with the Duolingo approach, at least not the vocabulary. Flashcards with pronunciation keyed to the lessons completed seems like a fundamental part of learning a language. I find it amazing that something that basic and which appears to be such an logical adaptation for Dutch is being sidetracked. Ah well, small country, minor language, limited resources, en zo verder...

Before I take this too far, has anyone found a specific course in Memrise that does actually integrate with Duoligo Dutch? Their wordlists and memory aids are great but if they are too broad for the particular lesson or my level of mastery their relevance is strictly long-term.

I am probably better off either making my own flashcards or finding a different Dutch course that is stronger in this particular area. Ik ben zo lui, I guess.

Time ago someone posted a google file in which someone had collected all new words for each section. Any hint where it is?

From my perspective that would be worth a few ingots!

I suppose you are referring to another one since this one only contains all of the het and de words. Still a great piece to work with :) enjoy!
