Liedje van de dag: Blankenberge

This might be a perfect song to practice the Flemish pronunciation of words. Hugo Matthysen is a Flemish columnist with a very recognisable sence of humour. Again, this song is in "clean" Dutch, but the parlando might be extra helpful. In this song, Blankenberge, he pronounces every sentence syllable per syllable. Maybe a bit fast for the beginner, but those who have reached a somewhat intermediate understanding of Dutch can use the lyrics as a good pronunciation exercise.
