What does "sound-bytes" mean?

Sound-bytes, that is how I like to call the many mp3-streaming sounds that will be in every lesson. These are meant to practice your pronunciation, to listen and understand dialogue, to practice questions and answers, and to have some fun, too. Because I make you listen to several Dutch pop songs and a children's song in Dutch. Of course there are other exercises too.

Discussion group

Maybe you will feel a bit alone at your email box. That is why I combined the Digidutch Language Course with a membership of a special online discussion group.

This is a Yahoogroup for Say it in Dutch students from all over the world. In this group you will also find many useful documents to download and useful links to help you study the language.
This combination of emails and a discussion group almost makes Digidutch similar to a real language group in The Netherlands, doesn't it?
