Once upon a time… La Trottinette went on a journey with fairies and other stories. I really enjoy reading them to my two little sons. But classic fairy tales often tend to be a bit old-fashioned. Sometimes the language is incredibly difficult to understand for children. That’s how Petra vertelt originates. I decided to ‘translate’ classic and well-known stories into accessible and understandable (Flemish) Dutch. I hope you’ll enjoy listening to them and maybe you’ll even be able to practice or learn some Dutch while doing it.

Listen to my most recent fairy tales. Would you like to read along while listening? You can download the transcription for each episode.
Petra vertelt originated thanks to the support of Dutch language coach Sietske. She started up her podcast Rebels Nederlands in April. She drew me into her project by sharing my stories on her channel. Sietske shares weekly language tips through her amazing and often very personal podcasts. Her juicy stories are an absolute must listen.
