The Frysk Diktee (Frisian Dictation) has a long and illustrious tradition. Many famous and not-so-famous Frisians attempt this ultimate language challenge each year. The Nationale Dictee (National Dictation) is disappearing, but in Friesland we’re actually going a step further. We are even going for a record attempt!
In 2018, as many people as possible will take part in the Frysk Diktee in the open air. Anyone who can write Frisian (or is willing to try) can join in at the Oldehoofsterkerkhof. We are aiming for as many participants as possible. Welmoed Sijtsma, presentor of the NOS Jeugdjournaal will write a short text of moderate difficulty. You can sign up here www.fryskdiktee.frl. Is there anything to laugh about? Of course, because the motto is: Dictation 2018 should be a party!
