What's this?

Exactly 100 words's worth of language learning reflection daily

Thursday, 8 March 2018


Dutch is effortless. Dutch is fun. It’s so much fun that I feel it doesn’t do me any good, but of course it does. It’s just that the idea that progress only comes with effort is so deeply ingrained.

I read the Lee Child books in Dutch as if reading them for the first time. That’s great, because I’ve read them all in English. I come across Dutch idioms and expressions that make me burst out laughing. And I come across vocabulary that I’ve never heard my parents use over the years.

I’d love to spend a year in Holland.
