If you hear people speaking Dutch, you hear expressions 'om de haverklap': your colleagues are going 'aan de slag', people ask you if you already have 'Nederlands onder de knie' and your teacher asks you if you can go 'uit de voeten'. If Dutch is not your mother tongue, there is 'geen touw aan vast te knopen'!
It is very useful to understand expressions, and they give an extra dimension to the language. De spijker op de kop will learn you more than 100 Dutch expressions that you will hear in daily life and in the media. The expressions will be presented in a clarifying context.
In this new edition, old media fragments are replaced and the assignments are new as well.
