Yeah, I've found that I can understand (mostly written) Dutch somewhat well mostly just because I speak German, and the trickiest thing for me is all those weird words I've never seen in German like "mooi" and "leuk" and (the adverb) "net" (I thought "net" could mean 'soon', but maybe that's just my imagination?).

Mooi shows up in the colloquial German of northern Germany, where the greeting "Moin Moin!" functions as a marker of local identity. Speakers of Standard German sometimes mistake this for a contraction of Morgen, but the source is actually a clipped and reduplicated "Moien dag!"

Also für mich ist mündliches Niederländisch ein Problem... Da kann ich zwar einzelne Wörter raushören und verstehen, jedoch bleibt mir der tiefere Sinn oft verborgen. ^^ Mit etwas Mühe ist geschriebenes Niederländisch allerdings mindestens zum Teil zu verstehen... Vor allem wenn man gute Englischkenntnisse hat, kann man manchmal etwaige Lücken zwischen dem Deutschen und Niederländischen erschließen.

Meine Familie mütterlicherseits kommt aus Rotterdam aber leider müssen wir immer auf Deutsch oder Englisch reden. Ich finde, dass die Niederländer generell besser Deutsch verstehen, als wir Niederländisch.

In einem Satz: Mündlich verstehe ich wenig, schriftlich jedoch Einiges.

So ergeht es auch vielen anderen, die ich kenne.

Ich lernte Niederländisch zwei Jahre lang in der Schule und muss zugeben, dass das Hörverständnis noch immer ein Problem für mich ist. Wenn man die sprachlichen Unterschiede und die wesentlichen Unterschiede im Wortschatz und der Schreibweise kennt, kommt man ziemlich gut ins Lesen rein, sprechen geht auch irgendwie, aber eine ganze Fernsehshow verstünde ich wahrscheinlich immer noch nur sehr schwer beziehungsweise gebrochen. :?

Die Sache ist, dass ich im Allgemeinen (unbewusst) mein Leseverständnis viel stärker trainiere als das Hörverständnis. Daran bin ich wohl selber schuld. :oops:

Ich denke aber dass das bei jemanden, der niemals NL gelernt hat, ähnlich aussieht. Die meisten können sich einen Text irgendwie zusammenreimen, aber einen sprechenden Niederländer zu verstehen ist nicht drin.
Sometimes I’ll start a sentence in English y termino en español.

Verstehen ...hmmmm.ich denke aufgrund der recht ähnlich klingenden Worte hier und da liegt mein Verständnis bei ca. 60-65%
Sprechen, wenn ich es z.B. vorgesprochen bekomme liegt bei ca. 80%. Jeden ,den ich frage ,sagt immer es wäre iene "niedliche Sprache". :wink:
I don't want to rule or conquer anyone. I should like to help everyone if possible, Jew, gentile, black man, white. We all want to help one another,human beings are like thatWe want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery.We don't want to hate and despise one another
In this world there is room for everyone and the earth is rich and can provide for everyone. The way of life can be free and beautiful. But we have lost the way. Greed has poisoned men's souls...

OMG, so that's where "moin moin!" comes from! I've always wondered about that. :D Thanks!
