Hello!

Hi! How are you?

My name is Hudson and I will share with you my experience with learning Dutch by myself. I will share what I think of the course, how I have been doing it, the differences with my own language, Portuguese, and my difficulties.

If you have questions or anything to say, post a reply! See you in the next posts!

Hello!

LES 46

Dag!

This lesson the course starts to expand the verb knowledge we have, as the last lessons of this course, we now learn the Dutch Present Perfect.

For now we haven’t learnt a lot, but this tense seems a bit complicated. First, I understood that the use is quite different from English, which already messed up my mind! Haha!

Let’s see in the next lessons more about this Present Perfect.

Hoi!

This time I am joining both lessons because they talk about the same thing, they explain a little more about plural form in nouns, this time I learnt a few new forms of making the plural.

I went very well in both exercises and these are easy lessons and nice to do.

Next time, in the last 5 lessons from the course, we head toward verb structures and tenses. See you!

Hoi!

This lesson is all about questions + prepositions, although that title the content is also related to verbs as we discuss more about verbs + preposition combinations.

I really liked this lesson, I don’t know really why but the “fill the blank” exercises are some of my favorites in the course, they are very useful to remember the verb + prepositions combinations and question + preposition combinations! Got 10 in it!

I am now starting more lessons in the vocabulary course, lesson 14 and 15 this time!

I will be taking a review kind of study planning starting this Monday so I review all the content used and be prepared for the course finale! See you!

Dag!

Hallo!

Another lesson to teach me ways to say I am busy with something. To me, these are some quite difficult lessons, with all this structure thing, so it has been a busy learning day.

And I managed to do well, but had to review the lesson. By the way, with a few days to finish this course, I am using the extra material Learndutch.org offers. If you don’t know, there are lot of support things as verb conjugation exercises, vocabulary videos, more advanced dutch content.

Right now, I am doing the vocabulary one as you may know and I gave a shot at the verb conjugation exercises. I did the first one just to test and see if they are nice and, I really recommend you to do they, there is new vocabulary there, new sentences, and it is big and not so easy! Test it!

Doei!

Les 41!

Hoi!

Wow, back to verbs and this thing I’m learning the verb + te + infinitive construction is quite complicated, I thought this lesson was not that easy.

I am so near to the end, 9 lessons are left. I will be back doing the vocabulary course, I feel like I need a bit of vocabulary.

Doei!

Les 40!

Hallo!

This lesson finishes with negation subject, although I think this lesson was so obvious it didn’t need to be explained! Haha.

As I told you, it was very easy I don’t really have anything to say. And I did the exercise and the review test, scored great!

Doei!

Dag!

In the new lesson I learnt (probably) the last things about adjectives in Dutch, the lessons summarizes and gives examples of the grammar adjective content finishing with a very useful graphic.

The exercises are shorter in the last lessons so they are very easy! Probably because it is almost finishing, I have 11 lessons left. And next lesson is not about verbs, can’t wait to do it!

Doei!

Les 39!

Les 38!

Hallo!

This lesson I could learn a bit more about prepositions, this time verbs combined with prepositions. A lot was learnt, and while it was a bit obvious to me, it was good to have a proper lesson on this.

And this was very easy and nice to learn, I finished before 25 minutes as most of my lessons are finished. Next lesson I won’t see verbs again, a break from all this verb content, I’ll study adjectives!

Doei!

Les 38!

Les 37!

Hoi!

This new lesson is in fact a complement of the previous, Les 36, so it was really important to understand the last lesson to get this one. Almost the same topic, but now I can say like “I begin to write a blog”, which I think would be “Ik begin een blog te schrijven”.

And it was really easy, I see now I can make lots of sentences! And in fact, I think I will be posting more and more sentences in the next posts, I must put this knowledge in practice. The exercise was nice too!


Vocabulary!

Regarding vocabulary thing, I saw Bart (Dutch Teacher) is updating the vocabulary course. I checked the first lesson and wow! It is super cool! Updated pictures, great content and of course, more quality! Really recommend you to watch it again if you have already, or starting watching it if you haven’t.

Dag!
