Better Frisian

The price for this program is normally €137,-, but now it is €69,- (unlimited access) The price is based on the cost, time and energy that was put into this program.

New features will be added to BetterFrisian throughout the time without any extra cost.
BetterFrisian has 19 different kind of chapters. Each chapter focuses on another aspect of the Frisian language. It takes you from A to Z. Almost each lesson starts with a little instruction, mostly with a chart. BetterFrisian is practical, it is about applying the language. The sentences used on BetterFrisian are realistic and useful in daily talks. You can follow your progress by checking the progress bar. BetterFrisian has not anything that is time related, so you can do everything on your own time.

The English used in the program is basic English (Germanic English). That means it is also easy to use for non-native English speakers.
I advise you, before you start with BetterFrisian to have gained some Frisian knowledge from LearnFrisian or another Frisian program/course, but it’s not needed. It will only make the experience easier/better.

Lesson 1: How to make words smaller

Apply Coupon

Goeie dei,

To make a Frisian word smaller you need to use the following rules:

1. If a word ends with m, p, f, r, i, s or w. You need to put -ke behind the word.

Example: glês -> gleske (glass -> little glass)

 
2. If a word ends with l, n, t or d. You need to put -tsje behind the word. Words that end with d or t already, you only need to use -sje.

Example: bêd -> bedsje (bed –> little bed).

 
3. If a word ends with k, ng, ch or ge. You need to put -je behind. Only words that end with ng, these need to be changed to nk + -je.

Example: seage -> seachje (saw – little saw) & wang -> wankje (cheek –> little cheek)

 
Mei freonlike groetnis,
Auke
