    @MasterAdmin: Great link! Exactly what I'd be looking for if I really wanted to learn Dutch. Of course...

    Err, Hallo, Ik ben Pravit. Ik spreeke Nederlands very bad.

    Ik spreek Nederlands heel slecht.
    And by the way, Hans Brinker did not exist. He was invented by an American and eagerly embraced by Dutch entrepreneurs in order to sell crappy cards and souvenirs with his picture on it (complete with clogs, cows, mills and preferably a tulip on his hat). Gah.

    Every tourist knows five Dutch people: Johan Kruijff, Rembrandt, van Gogh, Anne Frank, Hans(je) Brinker. The last never existed. Follow the link Mastadmin gave.

    call me greedy, but does anyone know of a similar thing for afrikaans? (the reason i'm asking here of all places, for those who don't know, is that it's very related to dutch)

    What do you mean by 'a similar thing'? A forum? I haven't heard of one, but I'm sure if you search for it on google, you'll be able to find one. Besides, if you know Dutch, you can read Afrikaans fluently. It does sound very silly though. Ik nie weet nie! Plofstof!

    Verskoon my, maar dit is gewoon watwonders snaaks!

    www.afrikaans.nu is 'n heel interessant site oor die oorspronk van die Afrikaans taal en oor hoekom hy nie so ver afstaa van die Nederlands taal nie.

    By the way, is there anyone here who is really trying to learn Dutch? If so, I would be glad to help. My Russian is not yet at a sufficient level to be really helpful to y'all.

    Wow, I understand this perfectly without knowing a word of Dutch!
    What a language! It seems to be a curiouse mixture of English and German.

    I saw a movie with Dutch subtitles once, and between my pretty decent English and very bad German, I was able to understand more than half of what was said.

    I can't help loving Dutch !!!

    Well, but that was a very simple sentence. Maar kan je dit verstaan? Dit is wel eventjes wat moeilijker te begrijpen dan datgene wat Garmonistka net schreef, vooral omdat ik nu een heleboel woorden gebruik die niet in het Duits of Engels voorkomen.

    Maar kan je dit verstaan?
    Aber (= maar, as Japser said) can ( = kan) you ( = je, sounds like it) dit ( = this ) verstehen ( = verstaan)?

    "But can you understand this?"

    Dit is wel eventjes wat moeilijker te begrijpen dan datgene wat Garmonistka net schreef, vooral omdat ik nu een heleboel woorden gebruik die niet in het Duits of Engels voorkomen.
    This ( = dit) is ( = is ) well ( = wel ) eventuell ( = eventjes ) (et)was ( = wat ) ??? ( = moeilijker ) to ( = te ) begreifen ( = begrijpen ) dann/then/than ( = dan ) thatwhat?? ( = dat + gene (jener) ) what ( = wat ) Garmonistka net ( = net ) schreiben ( = schreef )

    "This is well possible somewhat ... to understand than what Garmonistka precisely (?) wrote", which perhaps means

    "This may be somewhat harder to understand than what Garmonistka precisely (?) wrote"; so "moeilijk" is apparently "harder", taking away the comparative ending "er", we obtain "moeilijk" = "hard". Correct?That "net/precisely" thing escapes me, though.

    The rest is even easier, "above all ... I now use a ... words that appear neither in English or German"; "above all because I now use a (lot of) words that appear neither in English or German". Which is not true, because I could not identify only these: "moeilijk", "omdat", "heleboel" (hard, because, lot of). "Heleboel", when I think about it, seem composed of "hele" + "boel", the first being "whole"/"heil", and the second, e.g., "bowl".
