Woon je in Amsterdam? And why 'is het altijd', dont get the het lol :oops:
Dichtbij Amsterdam :)
‘is het altijd’ = ‘het’ reffers to ‘it’ - as in: it is always a good idea.

He, he. Like Ben already said- it's basically 'it', in this sentence- as 'the' can have various meanings and just depends on the context.
I don't live in Amsterdam, but not that far away from it.

I kinda figuered the 'het' shortly after I posted, but looks a bit out of space, I need some time and to read more Dutch to get used to it to properly. It's basically like es in German, but I think you can omit it.

Also funny that you have to say 'Ik find dat dat goed ist.', whereas in German you can drop the dat(dass) and basically say 'Ik find, dat is goed'. Okay, baf example as it too simple of a sentence, but you get it. Also the 'er is bit tricky, but Im gonna get it :lol:

Bedankt! ☺

Also German/English helps and unhelps at the same time. So many simmilar words, but different spellig ofc. Bezoek (besuch), hond (hund), uit (out) etc. :oops: :lol:

Funny is kleinkinderen (de: enkel), falseee friend alarm. :lol:

I'm usually not a big fan of Dutch music, but I'm in love with this Bløf song.
It's so cute. :)

Mijn meest gedraaide Nederlandstalige nummer van de laatste maanden: Oesters en Champagne van Teske.
Geweldig refrein. :D

Bij de eerste aflevering tranen over mijn wangen gelachen. Uiteindelijk 3x gezien. Die aflevering is zeker de moeite waard om te zien.
