Learning Dutch will not happen overnight, apparently

I downloaded the Google Translate app to help me with my Dutch. It’s a fantastic little app! Well, all apps are little, really. (in Dutch, little is “klein”. I think)

Anyway, you can speak into the app, and it auto-translates your speech on the screen! NEAT!!!

It very easily translated “Nice to meet you” into “Leuk om je te ontmoeten”… a common Dutch phrase I have practiced over and over.

But when I switched to Dutch and tried to get the app to translate “Leuk om je te ontmoeten” into English…

It thought I was talking about computers. Darn.

Luckily my iPhone holds no grudges against computers
