Dutch/Vocabulary/Survival kit

According to some psycholinguists these are the 63 most basic words to learn. (Actually the author added two to the set -man,woman- to arrive at a nice table)

Study them well! They are worth the effort.

The # mark opens a sound file. The words themselves are linked to the Dutch wiktionary. Use the links for more information.

Once you think you know all the words, go to the self test pages to test your new vocabulary.
