Nederlands praten … (Speaking Dutch …)

There is no real need to learn Dutch if you’re coming to the Netherlands for a short stay because almost everybody in the Netherlands speaks at least a little English. Most people even understand French and German.

If you are having plans to study or work in the Netherlands, it will be very handy to speak at least a bit Dutch to enlarge your possibilities. There are several web pages where you can study Dutch online.

 

Doei! (Bye, Goodbye: doo-e)

If you want to practice, try out the text-to-speech engine (link below) to work on your pronunciation. First select any Dutch synthetic voice and then fill in the text you want to hear.
