Learn Dutch with a full Dutch keyboard
With a tablet, you can do more than just use the touch screen. For the Dutch language module, which consists of various apps, we make use of the Dutch speech synthesiser and a unique sound keyboard.
During dictation, you listen to the voice of the tablet and try to type the word with a keyboard that has very special keys.
The familiar QWERTY keyboard does not help you to learn Dutch, which is why we have made a special keyboard for you where the letters like [ee] and [au] are also keys. Because of this, you understand much better how Dutch words are built up, and spelling exercises become a lot easier.
Onze Dutch Language apps
Below you will find our Dutch language apps, which are currently available.
Het werkwoord (the verb)
In Dutch we know regular verbs, sound-changing verbs and irregular verbs. In this app, you learn to set these three groups of verbs correctly in the past tense and as the past participle.
Het lidwoord (the article)
The Dutch language has no fixed rule for the use of articles, and you are often told that this language feeling should come naturally. In this app, you practice the use of articles in the Dutch language, and you already take the first step to develop this language feel.
This app is designed for anyone who has trouble with splitting Dutch words into syllables. The app simply explains the theory in the form of instruction cards and contains seven exercises. In addition to the seven practices, the app also includes four tests where you learn to split up 200 common long words into syllables.
Begrijpend Lezen (reading)
This app contains eight fun exercises and one combined test. Each exercise includes one or two pieces of text that you must read carefully. You will then receive five questions about this text at random.
Spelling Nederlands 1 (Dutch spelling)
Have you just started learning to read and write in Dutch? Then this is a beautiful practice app. This app contains many booklets, each with an exciting story. Each story includes four chapters, each with six exercises in which you can practice the so-called “consonant – vowel – consonant” words.
Spelling Nederlands 2 (Dutch spelling)
Do you have trouble writing down words correctly in Dutch? Then this is an excellent practice app. This app contains ten booklets with sixty practice words in each booklet. You practice spelling these words in groups of fifteen words. The exercises are suitable for children in primary school (from 9 years).
“Sometimes it is useful to look at the challenge from the beginning. Like during the development of our writing exercises. Of course, it was easy to use the standard keyboard. But as soon as you see how children type in words, you see that something is not going well. Children learn the “double sounds”-vowels and alphabetic letters that follow an order that was once invented by an American manufacturer of typewriters. So we made a new keyboard which addresses this problem.”
