About learning the Dutch language and life in the Netherlands come from Bon Journal and Diary entries written by Anne Ku

The Dutch have a sense of humour, no doubt about that. The Dutch are more direct than the English. Dutch is an old language, older than English. Dutch and German have a 50% overlap in vocabulary. [You don't capitalise nouns in Dutch but you do in German.]

This page will only get more populated with links and useful information as I get more into speaking the language of cunning linguists!

I invite you to suggest new links by contacting me directly.
