"Hij reist naar Duitsland."
Translation:He is traveling to Germany.
Would anyone be able to confirm the pronunciation of "Duitsland?" The clip sounds very like "Deutschland" to my ear but on other on line resources it sounds as if it should be pronounced closer to the spelling, more like "dowtsland." Thanks in advance.
The Dutch ui =/= the German eu, which sounds like "oi" in Dutch, ui sounds kind of like ow, but not quite, just look up the pronounciation and practise it. To me the TTS sounded correct this time.
According to Dutch pronunciation rules, it should be: /'dœy̯ts.lɑnd/.
So reist in all sentences means "is/are traveling"? I.e. "We are traveling to Germany." - "Wij reist naar Duitsland."?
Verbs still conjugate you know ;)
ik reis - I travel
Jij/je reist/reis jij/je - you travel/do you travel
Hij/zij/ze/het reist - he/she/it travels
Wij reizen - we travel
Jullie reizen - you travel
Zij reizen - they travel
In Dutch all present simple verbs also are continuous verbs, so ik reis also means I am travelling.
