About the Dutch Language

Dutch is a West Germanic language spoken by around 24 million people, mainly in the Netherlands, Belgium and Suriname, but also by smaller groups of speakers in parts of France, Germany and several former Dutch colonies. It is closely related to other West Germanic languages (e.g., English, West Frisian and German) and somewhat more remotely to the North Germanic languages. Dutch is a descendant of Old Frankish and is the parent language of Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa and the most widely understood in Namibia. Dutch and Afrikaans are to a large extent mutually intelligible, although they have separate spelling standards and dictionaries and have separate language regulators. Standard Dutch (Standaardnederlands) is the standard language of the major Dutch-speaking areas and is regulated by the Nederlandse Taalunie ("Dutch Language Union"). Dutch is also an official language of the European Union and the Union of South American Nations.

Dutch grammar also shares many traits with German, but has a less complicated morphology caused by deflexion, which puts it closer to English. Dutch has officially three genders, masculine, feminine, and neuter, however, according to some interpretations these are reduced to only two, common and neuter, which is similar to the gender systems of most Continental Scandinavian languages.

The consonant system of Dutch did not undergo the High German consonant shift and has more in common with English and the Scandinavian languages. Like most Germanic languages it has a syllable structure that allows fairly complex consonant clusters. Dutch is often noted for the prominent use of velar fricatives (ch and g, pronounced at the back of the mouth), often picked up on as a source of amusement or even satire.

Dutch vocabulary is predominantly Germanic in origin, considerably more so than English. This is to a large part due to the heavy influence of Norman French on English, and to Dutch patterns of word formation, such as the tendency to form long and sometimes very complicated compound nouns, being more similar to those of German and the Scandinavian languages.

 


The Pimsleur Language Learning System  is an digital audio foreign language skill process cultivated by Paul Pimsleur that highlights involved engagement over rote memory. During the course of instructions, the listener repeats phrases supplied by native speakers and builds new sentences by inference. As new sentences are revealed, the listener is inspired to echo some older words. The prompts for any supplied word or phrase are slowly-but-surely separated out in ever-increasing time interval. Between Nineteen Sixty Three and Nineteen Seventy One, Dr Pimsleur created Greek, French, Spanish, German, and Twi courses while instruction at the University of California, Los Angeles. The Pimsluer approach centers on abilities in conversing, as well as technique in reading. These pair of facets are perfected as a result of 30-minute modules, which are repeated until a score of at the very least eighty% appreciation is accomplished before carrying on to the up coming lesson. Throughout the time of the tutorials, people listen to native speakers of the targeted foreign language as they communicate phrases in both the foreign language, and also the student’s leading language. At graduated intervals, students are inspired to reproduce a key phrase immediately after listening to the presenter. As the individual advances through the programme, the interval grows, as does the magnitude of the lexicon. The activities are made up of thirty-minute daily courses and shorter reviewing courses
