Native Dutch speakers cannot understand this. I've met a couple here and there and when I said what my favourite Dutch-speaking band was, they would just burst out laughing :)

But hey, it's a great way to quickly learn all basic Dutch words. Seriously. The songs are super simple, and extremely easy to remember. Probably because this band's target audience is small girls :)

I proudly present... K3!

My favourite Dutch-speaking music source :)

Keep in mind that K3 is a Belgian band, not Dutch.
Therefore, accents and certain vocabulary will differ.

But I know what you mean, since K3 is mostly popular among the little girls (< 12 year olds) here (and there).

Yes, I know they are Belgian but that's probably what makes it easier for me.. They had one of the girls replaced some time ago, with another one from the Netherlands. When I watched some interviews,I could more or less understand the Belgian ladies, but the Dutch one, although with a pretty Dutch accent, was always very hard  to understand :)

Awww, thanks for sharing, Anna :)  I love Belgian accent even more than Dutch one, the Dutch one sound so rough, but the Belgian is so nice :P  Wish I was moving to Belgium instead of the Netherlands, I think it would be easier for me to understand  people better over there, as well as pronouncing words better.  I've some trouble with some words that carry the ''ng'' combo, lol.   A friend of mine is Belgian, by the way, I might surprise him the next time we talk :P  I bet he doesn't expect me to talk Dutch to him!

Don't let it fool you too much though.
Although Belgians and Dutch people can communicate with each other really well, there may be some misunderstandings between the 2.
I experienced it at one point when talking to a Belgian, the sentence was pretty basic but I can't really remember what it was.

      Hello, everybody.
      I'm sorry if this forum is not for music, but I've been searching for those lyrics everywhere and never found them. I tried to write them by ear but cannot understand almost anything. Maybe a native speaker or a more fluent person than me can help me with this song and write down the lyrics ¿?  (The Grave Shall Be Forever by the band Paralysed Age).
      A translation into another language is not necessary (I understand written English, plus I just want to sing it and make my own version). Thanks a lot!

      I listen to music and translate it to learn new languages.  I use Spotify for most of my music.  However, the only foreign language (foreign to the US, that is) music that I seem to have run into so far is Spanish, one French song and 99 Luftballoons.  What non-English songs do you know of on Spotify?  Even if it's just a small portion of the song, like the chorus or a verse.

      Do you guys have any favorite Chinese songs? When I first started learning Chinese I would randomly download a bunch of songs and filter out the ones I didn't like. As a result I have a couple of songs that I love and keep on reply almost every day. I also got some nice Cantonese ones in the process too; I can't understand them though. I think one of the best things about listening to Chinese songs is the more words you learn the more of the song you understand. It's kind of like the song your listening to is a mystery, but a couple of months later after you learn some more Chinese you can understand it. It just feels so good to be listening to the song you've had for months and suddenly be like "I know what he's saying!". Do you guys have any favorite songs? I'll link some of mine. Post yours below!
