Dutch worldwide

Authentic audio samples

Now you can listen to some Dutch learners from around the world talking about this week’s topic.



As in Week 1 and 2, we have approached other learners of Dutch from around the world and asked them to record themselves. In this section you will listen to two different students talking about this week’s topics. Can you understand some of what they are talking about? Give it a try!

Recording yourself through Soundcloud

In this course you learnt to read and write, listen and speak. We followed your writing progress, but we didn’t notice your speaking skills. At least, until now: we invite you to record yourself by using the Soundcloud website.

We have created a group where you can record yourself or upload a recording and listen to other learners of Dutch.

Why not introduce yourself, tell us where you come from, talk about your family, tell us something more about where you live and if you liked learning Dutch during these three weeks. You can also listen to other learners and get to know them.

Create or upload a recording

Please click Introduction to Dutch - Soundcloud (if you prefer Soundcloud to open in a separate window, click the CTRL key while clicking the link). Remember that you first have to sign in before you are able to upload your recording or create your recording. You can either create a new account or use your Facebook or Google+ account.

Once you are signed in, you can upload a recording to the group Introduction to Dutch. You can also create a recording with the Soundcloud website and then select the track and add it to the Introduction to Dutch group.

We are looking forward to hearing more about you!
