Dutch

I reviewed lessons 8-13 of Dutch with Ease, both listening and in the book. As with all of my other languages, I’m sure it will improve with time, but as of right now, I’m having quite a hard time with Dutch pronunciation. The guttural g, even though it’s similar to the ch in German, is particularly difficult, as it sounds at the beginning of many words. The ij combination in words like dikwijls (often) also gives me trouble.

German

I did some of the repetitions for the words I learned on the 19th, and added around 20 sentences to my Anki deck.

Russian

Nothing, other than staying on top of my Anki deck.
