I know the Dutch are direct but if some women said that to me I may think of running.


Lol, I just assumed they are already engaged


Can someone link me when jij vs je I cannot hear the difference in how it is said so it has to be why it is being used and I am just missing the point. Thank you


No, it's about how it's said when it's a listening exercise. The pronunciation of je and jij is different.

Compare the pronunciation of jij bent in this sentence, with the pronunciation of je bent in the sentence in this link: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/3733131


The stress is on 'jij' but not on 'je'.
