About Dutch

Dutch is the native language of the 16 million inhabitants of Netherlands, 6 millions in Belgium where it is known as Flemish, and about 60% of the people in Surinam. Dutch is also spoken in other parts of the world like Aruba and the Netherlands Antilles.

The Dutch language has left its imprint on many languages of the world. Some English words of Dutch origin include: Cookie from "koekje" (="biscuit", "cookie"), geek from "geck" (="fool"), yacht from "jacht" (=originally "hunt"), and many more. Many place names in New York City are reminders of the old Dutch colony of New Amsterdam: Brooklyn (called after the town of Breukelen near Utrecht), Harlem (called after the city of Haarlem near Amsterdam), or Coney Island from Conyne Eylandt (literally "Rabbits' Island").

The Dutch language is very similar to German, but easier to learn in many aspects.
