    Netherlands

    Some people on this forum already knows a few words, and I think you all know one Dutch word, namely "Apartheid" But here are some basic Dutch words. If you know all these words, you will survive in this tiny country full of...roads...

    dankjewel - Thank you
    Hallo - Hello
    Hoe is ie - What's up
    Dit is troep - This is crap
    Geef me een joint - give me a joint
    Spoiler: NOT SUITABLE FOR CHILDREN :D show

    If you want to know anything else just ask me

    Re: The dutch language!!!

    .... XD

    I actually know two very pretty Dutch girls online who I talk with MSN quite a lot - and one of them I've talked to on a webcam. They're both very cool and taught me some Dutch... which I guess I might as well run off here...

    Feel free to correct me on anything you might see as a mistake...

    Yes = Ja
    Yeah = Jep
    No = Nee
    Sorry = Sorry
    What = Wat
    Good Morning = Goede morgen
    Good Night = Welterusten (?) or goede nacht ( are there two ways to say it? )
    Good Day = Goedemiddag
    Good-Bye = Doei or daag
    Interesting = interessant
    You're welcome = graag gedaan
    Here you go (?) = alsjeblieft

    How are you? = hoe is het met jou?
    Are you doing well? = gaat het goed?
    How is your day going? = hoe is je dag?
    Did you have a fun day? = leuk dag gehad?

    I'm super! = met mij gaat het super!!
    I'm happy to hear that = goed om te horen
    and you? = jij ook?

    sweety! = lieverd!
    have fun = veel plezier

    sexy girl = sexy meisje
    fun girl = leuk meisje
    fun boy = leuke jongen

    awesome = geweldig
    amazing = ongelofelijk
    precious = schatje

    I draw every day = ik teken elke dag

    'zou je iets mij willen drinken, jij geweldige sexy vrouw? =
    'do you want to have a drink with me, you awesome sexy woman?'

    wil je iets met me gaan eten, jij geweldige sexy vrouw?
    will you have lunch with me, you awesome sexy woman?

    I know = ik weet het
    I don't know = ik weet het miet

    sweet dreams = fijne dromen
    a hug and a kiss for you = knuffel en kus voor jou

    It is good = hij is goed!

    Spoiler: dirty words show


    Well... that's all I can think of at the moment


    P.S. Khal, I'll be sure to remember 'Goed gedaan!', 'Mooi werk!' 'Bedankt voor de info[rmatie]!' ... but don't expect me to say 'Wauw, jij bent knap/mooi!' to you anytime soon...

    Yeah, something like that, "goedenacht" is a more literal way of saying things, while "welterusten" is more like "sleep well"...

    Quote Originally Posted by Gold Knight

    Goodbye = Tot ziens!
    Bye = Dag/Doei ( and some thousands of other ways to say goodbye )

    You could just say: "Wauw, ik aanbid u, oh groot orakel, neergekomen als messias op aarde om ons nederige schepselen te verlichte, ook al ben ik onwaardig!" to me

    Note that "knap" could mean both "pretty" ( good-looking ) and "smart" ( good-thinking ), so you could say "wauw, jij bent knap!" if someone made some beautiful colouring or something... ( though "mooi" only means "handsome/pretty/good-looking" when directed to a person )

    Re: Dutch Thread

    Aaaaaah, nice to see foreigners know some dutch words other than "ik wil je neuken in de keuken" :P

    And gold knight, I even spotted a spelling error in your dutch

    It's ment to be 'Ik weet het niet' but that may be just a typing fault.
    And there are so many ways to say goodbye, almost every (and there are a lot *cough cough cough*) district in the netherlands has it own way.

    en ShgnLW, dat is gemeen om de rest te laten zeggen dat jij hun meester bent :P

    *Dutch Scans can be found at the International Scanlation thread*

    Re: Netherlands

    A dutch will says this: Ik heb altijd gelijk - I'm always right
    Jij hebt geen gelijk- You're not right
    You will say this: Jij hebt gelijk - You're right
    Ik heb geen gelijk - I'm not right
    Het spijt me - I'm sorry

    This is all you need to now, A dutchman is ALWAYS right, remember that, because he self will also think he's right.

    Re: Netherlands

    I'm thinking of studying in netherlands next year, I like the country (put aside Geert Wilders and guys actually voting for such a !$#&!/?-self zensorship to avoid getting banned-) and some of it's legal interpretations in specific :>
    Plus my hown town is close to the border and I guess the language shouldn't be too hard to learn for Germans
    Is a High German accent considered to be rude in Netherlands, like it is in Swiss?

    Re: Netherlands

    Considering we put up with morrocan/turkish accents, I'd say no.

    Geert Wilders... the guy shouldn't even be in the government at all. I mean, seriously, what sort of politician has time to publish a glossy mag about himself?

    I mean, for someone like Patricia Paay I can understand why she would do such a thing, but come on! The guy's supposed to lead by example, especially during economical recess! And yet all he does is whine and hinder the others that are seriously trying... well, maybe not that hard, but at least they're doing something other than twiddling their tumbs.
