Why learn Dutch

We get it, you speak English at work, use the self-checkout at the supermarket and your partner speaks your mother tongue. Why even bother learning Dutch? If you wish to build a life for yourself in the Netherlands, you will find that speaking and understanding Dutch is integral to building friendships, and forming part of society. Speaking Dutch will make a difference in your everyday life. Even just ordering your koffie verkeerd in Dutch will make you feel more at home.
