Dutch Course: 250 Proverbs and Sayings

“250 Dutch Proverbs” is a free online Dutch course, made by Bart de Pau. It consists of 25 video lessons. In each lesson the meaning of 10 proverbs is explained, when to use it and the origin. You can do this course from level A2/B1 till fluent.

The Dutch frequently use proverbs and sayings (spreekwoorden en gezegden) in their communication. Understanding proverbs is essential for communicating with native Dutch speakers. Many students who learn Dutch, do not pay attention to learning Dutch proverbs. This is a pity. Only a small amount of proverbs is used, so it does not take too much time to learn!

There are many books on the market, containing 1000’s of proverbs, of which 95% an average native Dutch speaker does not know. In this course you find a selection of Dutch proverbs you should know. Each video lesson has subtitles and you can read the transcript. You can do the exercises (that come with the video lessons).

From lesson 11-25, Kata Szep has made illustrations of 1 proverb per lesson, your task to guess what proverb is on the drawing!
