About Dutch

Dutch is the name of the official language spoken by more than 20 million people in the Netherlands and in Flanders, the Northern part of Belgium – together they are sometimes called the Low Countries. Contrary to what many people would have you believe, particularly the Dutch, it is a relatively easy language to learn, particularly for speakers of English, because of the many similarities in vocabulary and the regularities of the language.
