Dutch Word of the Day: huis: house; also a hit sh…


Dutch Word of the Day:
huis: house; also a hit show on FOX that I miss right now
Onze huis…in het midden van de straat.
Our house…in the middle of our street.

This is the hallway in the Prinsegracht. It’s a little hotelish, but hey. Here’s a phonetics lesson:

Dutch Spelling=English prounciation
ui=ou
ie= ee
ch=g
ij=ay
w=v

No wonder it’s not a business language.
