Was typing... "It is too hot in the..."

Wait how do you say buitenland in English?? I DON'T KNOW HOW TO TRANSLATE THIS EVEN THOUGH I UNDERSTAND WHAT IT MEANS.

wanted to say... "outside country", but that doesn't really work in English. :)

Abroad, elsewhere, overseas. :)

Don't worry about it, the better you get at a language, the more you'll come across things you understand, but cannot easily translate. For instance gezellig, aan de wind, burgerlijk, singel, doorzakken, borrelen, bakkie troost are hard to translate into English. It also works the other way around, you won't find a Dutch word for siblings. :)

Why does the pronunciation skip the n in buitenland? Is that an error or is that the actual correct pronunciation?
