Stuart leest mij nog voor en dan ga ik slapen.
And at bed time Stuart read me a bed time story.


That is it for now from Alex de Leeuw since he has to return to the class room but do not fear, he will return.

    I’ve really enjoyed this series and felt slightly better about my infant Dutch language skills when I realized I understood what was being written! Look forward to more from Alex de Leeuw.

  2. Lily says:

    That was a great adventure with Alex de Leeuw. I hope he stays with you again soon!

  3. Invader Stu says:

    Alison – I felt the same when I was able to understand Alex.

    Lily – We’ve already arranged for him to spend more time with us ;)

  4. Isabella says:

    This is great! Keep these coming, when you can :-)

  5. VallyP says:

    Oh I agree with the others here. He’s a real cutie and what’s more, he could help a lot of us with our Dutch…he could make a fortune! By the way, did you show him round Rotterdam too? I see you took hom to the harbour in Amsterdam, so you’ll have to bring him to ours too…he can go and get drunk with all the students on Thursday nights… could escort him there too ;-)

  6. VallyP says:

    him, not hom…and I meant he could give online Dutch lessons through your blog. Would be kind of special to say I’m getting Dutch lessons from a lion…

  7. Invader Stu says:

    Isabella – I will :)

    VallyP – That’s a good idea. We still have to show him around Rotterdam but I don’t know about letting him go out drinking. He is under age after all.

    And I have to admit that helping him post on my blog has helped with my Dutch too (and his English) so it’s not a bad idea to have him give lessons.

    Alex should come do improv with us. In Dutch. Ja, meneer.

  9. Invader Stu says:

    Well… that would make some great photos to put on my blog. I could see if I could bring him along one night :p

  10. The girlfriend says:

    @kiki that is brilliant, give him some stage-time ;)

  11. Anita says:

    Lieve knuffel beest: leuk je te hebben ontmoeten !
    You have brightened my day.

  12. Invader Stu says:

    I’m happy to hear that :)

  13. Rose DesRochers says:

    Alex is a cutie and you were a great host.

  14. Invader Stu says:

    Thanks. He is isn’t he :)
