To keep Dutch pronunciation easiest, these Dutch words are shown to have a similar pronunciation to English if the letters are pronounced enough alike that Dutch people will probably understand what you mean if you pronounce those words as you do in English. You may merely sound like you have an ‘English accent’ in Dutch.
