Why to learn Dutch?
First of all, the Netherlands is a country where you can speak English in practically any place (about 86% of the population does). However, it's helpful to learn some fundamental words so you can get around in regions where English is not spoken. What would you do if everyone had their English memory erased through brainwashing? Even if that's unlikely, you get the idea. In the odd event that you want assistance, some individuals might not be able to adequately assist you or inquire about what you require. Trust us, a little bit of Dutch goes a long way.
Secondly, despite how unlike the sounds of Dutch and English are, they are genetically connected. This indicates that knowing English provides you an edge while studying Dutch, without getting into the nasty specifics. But you'll still need to get acclimated to the strange diphthongs in Dutch. Additionally, you have an edge if you are fluent in another continental European language, particularly German because they are almost dialects of one another. If you are fluent in these languages, bravo, since learning Dutch will be simpler for you!
Finally, it's not always easy to see the culture. A place's language, sayings, humor, and even music are all part of its culture. As a result, you may learn a lot about Dutch culture by learning a little bit of Dutch or by speaking it. You may also converse with locals! The best method to fit in is always to talk to the locals.
