I’ve talked a few times about silly little sentences I’ve been taught so far. Everyone has fond memories of the farmers affiliation to the bus! Today I feel like i have found another key sentence that will be required in order to survive with any Dutch person.
I have been looking at a chapter called “Ga je mee?” which basically translates to “Are you coming..?” Its all about learning how to ask someone to go somewhere or arrange and make plans.
“Nee, sorry, kan ik niet, ik moet mijn haar wassen” which translates to “No, sorry, I cant, I have to wash my hair”.
Now I can’t quiet explain why I found this all that funny but personally I think its a brilliant thing to be taught second only to “Niet vanavond, ik hoofdpijn hebben!” (“Not tonight, i have a headache”). I think the fact is that i didn’t really expect to be taught it when learning the vocab for a discussion about the cinema. The more I learn the more I’m planning on doing a post about brilliant little sentences like this, who knows what sentences will make it into the *start* phrases!
If you’ve got any brilliant little dutch ditties send them my way!
