Is it important to learn Dutch? I am in doubt as to whether I should learn Dutch as everyone here seems to speak English.
What is the most effective way for me to learn Dutch? I am not a natural linguist, so I might find it hard to learn Dutch.
It is not compulsory for me to learn Dutch but I would like to learn it. Can you suggest some good language institutes and learning centres for me?
Who can attend classes at a volksuniversiteit?
Can I teach myself Dutch?
Is there any organisation that can help me practice my Dutch and help me feel at home?
