Dutch lesson: Lesson 2
Welcome to the second lesson.
Let’s start with a new word, which you’re going to use very much!
but is maar
Well, it is time for something important:
Well, it’s not that hard, just put niet in the sentence, it’s a bit irregular where it’s placed, although there are rules for, but that’s not so easy, ie is pronounced as in bee
A couple of other words:
speak is spreek.
English is Engels (Language and nationality)
Dutch is Nederlands(""), again see: http://translate.google.nl/#nl/en/Nederlands
Try to say:
If You want to say that she doesn’t speak English, you make a negation with geen instead of niet.
Remember the rule with -t?
I don’t speak English, but I’m from England|Ik spreek geen Engels, maar ik kom uit Engeland.
Note: If she is not overly stressed you can also use ze, here the e is pronounced as in pathetic.
If you want to say that he or she is, you use is, It’s easy! It’s just pronounced the same as in English.
You see that niet is placed at the end?
I think that this is enough for this lesson, hoped that you learned something!Next lesson >
