Hoi Oana,


Oh wow...well spotted! We will change that as soon as possible. You are absolutely right :


Raspberry --> framboos

Blackberry --> braam

Hello,


I have a question: is braam not "blackberry"? It was translated as raspberry ( is it "framboos" in Dutch?) in the Vocabulary and Lesson Notes sections.


Thank you!
