    Are there alot of German and French speaking people in the Netherlands? I have heard that Dutch sounds alot like these 2 languages combined.

    Quite, but I'll bet you can't imagine that; it sounds weird for anyone from anywhere. Dutch is incredibly hard to learn, for anyone, even the Dutch.

    All Dutch kids get English, German and French in secondary school. No one likes it, but they have to if they ever want to travel or trade.

    I´ve allways thought that Dutch sounded like a mix between Danish and German.

    Really? In Canada the only other language they teach us is French. Although much of Canada is French speaking. I did teach my self Russian about a year ago and that is an extremely hard language, 33 letters makes it even tougher.

    Oh yeah btw: In Holland we can choose some other languages at secundairy school: next to French, English and German, I have had Spanish as well and there's a possebility to choose for Latin or Greek as well. (Ancient languages!)

    Some schools provide optionals on Turkish, Arabic, Fries, Russian etc. as well, but that's just for some :D
    Skua, perhaps you are right, but it is not clear to me what Danish sounds like as I have hardly ever heard it spoken. Once I heard Swedish, I could make that out pretty well without knowing a word in the language, so you could say Dutch is like Swedish too. Like I said, it sounds strange to anyone anywhere.
    We do use lots and lots of French words in our language. In short, we have a German and a French word for everything, but we use the English word we heard in a tv show :lol:
