I start to understand people around me! It changed my life in Belgium for the better. Earlier I was frustrated that I studied AN for 2 years and could only understand people in Holland. Thanks to this book I understand most Flemish people as well which was the most important for me.
It’s more than a book! I’ve been in Belgium for 18 months and already passed NT2 A1-A2 but still could not understand the people so well. I understood only standaardtaal but never heard tussentaal. “Wa zegt ge” makes me figure out what the people express more. The Flemish spoken language is attractive but difficult. My husband family is Brussels. They speak always mixed French and Vlaams. Nobody can explain to me clearly. I also studied French A1 but it was not a good solution. I was hopeless till I found this book. There are a lot of exercise to practice. I’m continuing practice listening as much as I can.
Een fantastisch boek voor iedereen die het Vlaams (Nederlands) wil grondig beheersen. Ik ben super blij met mijn aankoop!
Having a father from Belgium (who unfortunately did not teach me Flemish) and a general interest in languages, I wanted to learn Flemish, but all books that I found were for learning standard Dutch. So I was more than happy to come across this fabulous and comprehensive book for Vlaamse spreektaal, it is exactly was I was looking for. It’s all about communication and the language that is really spoken, with heaps of examples, audio material and fun exercises to perfectly set you up for colloquial conversations, covering all kinds of everyday situations you might find yourself in. This book has helped me a lot to communicate with my family in Belgium, and I keep constantly consulting it . Thank you 🙂
I Ik spreek Nederlands, maar de dialecten hebben inspanning en middelen nodig. Dus ik vond dit boek erg handig. Een vriend van mij gebruikt het al heel lang en beheerst nu het dialect op een geweldige manier.
Lisa DB –
Ik heb dit boek cadeau gedaan aan een vriendin die na drie jaar Nederlands te studeren nu aan het échte (spreek)werk kan beginnen! 😉 We nemen samen de hoofdstukken door en het boek is voor zowel mezelf als voor haar amusant en leerrijk!
