Dutch Audio Request

58 Words / 2 Recordings / 2 Comments
Note to recorder:

I am taking a Pimsleur course is dutch. I am a native English speaker.

When the course says later, much later; the word veel sounds somewhat like the English 'fill.'

When the course says how much do I owe, the word veel sounds somewhat like the English word 'vale.'

Are their two different words? Or two different sounds to the same word? Or is my hearing of Pimsleur messed up.

Dank oo

They're the same words and it sounds closer to 'vale' than it does to 'fill'. I will be recording your sentences for you:
- later, veel later
- hoe veel krijgt u van me?
