I'm from the Netherlands, and I'm very interested in the Violin Contest, I was wondering: If I win, will the violin be send to the Netherlands? And how do you know what adress to send to? Well, hope to hear from you soon.

With kind regards,

Leon

Welcome to the forum Leon.  I wish you good luck.  Winner has to furnish his/her address to FM to which the violin will be sent.  Last winner got it in Phillippines.

Hey Fiddlerman,

 

Would it be OK to use screenshots of your webpage in the video?  I've got a kind of neat idea that I'm playing with and being able to use images from your site would really round it out.

That isn't Dutch, is it? It's Frisian?

Lol, ek kan nie Frisian verstaan nie. Ek kan slegs 'n bietjie Afrikaans (kinder Nederlander taal) praat.

It is so fun that even if i really don't know anything about this language, i can still understant a little bit thanks to other languages.

 

Ek kann = ich kann = I can

geen probleem = kein problem = no problem

Dankie = Danke = Thank you

ek het in Zuid-Afrika vir 5 jahre geliefe =  Ich habe in Suden-Afrika fur 5 Jahre gelebt = I have been living in South Africa for 5 years

Am i right ?

Ja, richtig.
Your version is almost like German compared to my ( boere) Dutch. I also speak German so I kind of blend the differences. Interesting!crossedfingers

Aha Aleive, you recognise it's a Dutch "dialect "so you understand more than you realise. that's why languages are so fascinating.

I don't speak any of those languages, but I still puzzled out most of it. birthday_balloon But then, English is such a conglomerate of languages it's not that surprising.

Aha Aleive, you recognise it's a Dutch "dialect "so you understand more than you realise. that's why languages are so fascinating.

All "germanic" languages are very alike. Norwegian, Danish (I can understand all of it apart from the very weird counting system) Swedish, German, Dutch, Icelandic, Faroese, and so on.. I have to admit that some upper-German and southern Danish varieties are like greek to me. 

And since I know Spanish and have a Fiancee that speaks Portugese at home, I can understand most Portugese and Spanish. Though the Mexican dialects make me scratch my head in confusion. Cuban dialects however are very similar to Canarian ones, so those are actually pleasing. 

Let it be noted that the only languages I actually SPEAK are Norwegian, English of course, and Spanish. But as the grammar and many words are alike I can understand most of these. Comparing Norwegian and Swedish for instance would be like comparing American English and British English. So some are really alike 🙂 I would go so far as to classify German and Dutch as such as well. At least from a reading standpoint. There really is little difference between southern Danish and German either. Though this may be somewhat incorrect, it is just my observations and opinions^^

But once you start speaking Finnish or Suomi. I capitulate 😛 I always wanted to learn Suomi though. 

I used to want to become a linguist/interpreter when I was a child. Then I realized that most things they do is translate movie titles and such 🙁

True, the translators that I have met through my language classes, even those that work alongside diplomats say that the words go in one ear in one language, come out of the mouth in a different language, and they cannot remember a word of anything that have said all day.

So you wrote something like: Wow! Ik kan dit lezen, geen probleem! Dankje (dank u). Maar ik ben een ...rooinek?..., ik ben voor 5 jaar in Zuid-Afrika geweest. Right?

Or in English: Wow! I can read this, no problems at all! Thank you (Thank you). But I'm a redneck(?), I was in South-Afrika for 5 years. dancing
