Spreek je Nederlands?

I will be the first to tell you that learning Dutch is not easy. In fact, one of the first phrases I mastered was ‘Ik vind het een moeilijke taal” (I find it a difficult language).

Liguistically, it is the language closest in form to English. And it’s considered a simplified version of German, albeit with slightly different pronunciations. It has relatively simple grammatical rules, and fewer verb forms than many Romance languages.

But easy to learn? That depends, I think, on two things:¬†how hard you’re willing to work at it, and whether you can immerse yourself in Dutch conversational opportunities.

I do, however, feel that it’s important to at least try. So I soldier on. I explain why in an article I wrote for ACCESS magazine here in the Netherlands.

Let me know what you think. I’d love to know!
