Hallo! Welcome to me trying to speak only Dutch for 24 hours! I’ve been learning Dutch throughout quarantine because it’s my Mum’s mother tongue. Enjoy the bad grammar and confusion of my brother while we bake vegan cookies!! ✌️ I hope this can serve as inspiration for how to learn any new language!
Advice for language learning :
– Immerse yourself as much as possible. Forcing yourself to think through daily tasks in the target language is so useful.
– Don’t fixate only on grammar and try speaking!
– Practise. I have a Mexican friend who is learning Dutch and he’s been so helpful to speak to!
