FAQ


My country is not listed among the shipping options.

If you would like to order one of our books, but don’t find your country among the shipping options, please send an e-mail to sofie@goestingintaal.com.
I will then investigate the shipping options to your country as quickly as possible and contact you with more information.

Why is there no free shipping?

Contrary to big platforms like Zalando and Bol.com, as a small web shop we do not get special rates from BPOST.
In fact, the real costs per package are 5,70 euros for a big book (we charge 4,95 euros to our customers) and 2,85 euros for a small book (we charge 2,50 euros).
You will also notice that many of these big platforms actually do charge you shipping costs by increasing the price of the product, something we don’t do.
If you really want to avoid shipping costs, you can definitely go check out our books in our partner Book shops: Standaard Boekhandel in Leuven, Filigranes in Brussels and ACCO in Leuven.

What language or dialect are your books written in?

Our books want to help you speak spoken Flemish, something we call “tussentaal”. It’s not the dialect of a specific region, it’s the way people from different Flemish regions would speak together. Imagine you are in an office in Brussels or you have friends from different regions coming together.
It is also the language you will hear in most Flemish movies, fiction series and reality shows.

If you want to learn more about specific dialects, I recommend you to check out this page on our website, as well as the website of Dialectloket.

We are currently working on a series of online lessons “West-Vlaams voor beginners” which will focus on a specific dialect: West-Flemish. Keep an eye on our Facebook page to stay updated in this project!

I am a beginner. Which of your books can I use?

All our survival guides are suitable for beginners and have explanations about the basic grammar. They also include audio to help you with the pronunciation.
The only book which is not suitable for beginners, is our book “Wa zegt ge? – Vlaamse spreektaal voor anderstaligen”. You need an intermediary level to be able to use this book.

For which level are your books suitable?

Survival guide for international students: beginners to intermediate level
Survival guide for the office: beginners to intermediate level
Le flamand au bureau : beginners to intermediate level
Survival guide for parents and partners: all levels
Wa zegt ge? Vlaamse spreektaal voor anderstaligen: intermediate to advanced level

I want to learn the official Dutch. Can I use your books?

Our project is focused on making informal spoken language accessible to people learning Dutch in Belgium. That means there are small differences between the Dutch you will find in our books and the Dutch you will learn in school or hear on the news.
If you really want to focus exclusively on Standard Dutch, we recommend the “Vanzelfsprekend” and “Niet vanzelfsprekend” series by ACCO.
