Dutchman wins great dictation

Dutchman Jacques Bettelheim won last night’s Groot Dictee der Nederlandse Taal (see Alphabet Soup yesterday) with just five mistakes. Bettleheim is the first Dutch national to win the joint Dutch-Flemish competition in years. The 60 participants made an average of 31 mistakes each.
