Study sessions (Or: Reading Dutch over videochats)

Number of days (straight) I have studied Dutch: 6.

The Dutch learning streak is going well! Today’s fun: reading the previously mentioned children’s book to Marco, page 1, over MSN videochat. I was decent at it, though of course my pronunciation needs improvement. Lots of improvement…

He helped me with some words I didn’t know (and that the small Dutch-English dictionary didn’t have). It’s baby steps, but so far I have read 3 pages of the book. I guess it doesn’t help that I read a page at the end of the night, around 11PM or so. I am usually pretty tired by then. Although usually earlier in the night I am studying over at

Here are two random blog posts I want to highlight today:
