Hi everybody

From zure haring en broodje kroket to frieten en pralines. From fietsen and Koninginnedag to schaatsen and de Gentse Feesten. Here, you can ask questions about anything related to the Dutch or Flemish culture or share your experience with others.

Hello, I'm a french student, and i'm looking pfr some dutch people who can answer the questions i have to make for my studies. Thank you for your help.

1) Do you think that the Netherlands have a good image abroad?

2) In your opinion, do the stereotypes of the country are justified (windmills, wooden shoes…)?

3) Do you like the royal family? Do you think that they are useful for your country?

4) Have you ever been abroad? Did you notice some differences with your own country? What are they?

5) What do you think about the legal consumption of cannabis in the country? Do you think that other countries have to do the same?

6) Do you think that Holland has a good health care policy?

7) What do you want to change in your country?

8) What do you prefer in the Dutch way of living?

9) Do you think that the country have a good level of education?

10) Are you interested with the next election for the European deputies? Do you think that the country will have a good level of participation?

11) Can you teach me some Dutch useful words?

1) Do you think that the Netherlands have a good image abroad?
Heeft Nederland een goed imago in het buitenland?

2) In your opinion, do the stereotypes of the country are justified (windmills, wooden shoes…)?
Zijn de stereotypen over het land terecht, volgens u? (molens, klompen, ...)

3) Do you like the royal family? Do you think that they are useful for your country?
Wat vindt u van de koninklijke familie? Is ze nuttig voor uw land?

4) Have you ever been abroad? Did you notice some differences with your own country? What are they?
Bent u ooit in het buitenland geweest? Nam u enige verschillen waar tegenover uw eigen land? Welke?

5) What do you think about the legal consumption of cannabis in the country? Do you think that other countries have to do the same?
Wat vindt u van het feit dat cannabisconsumptie legaal is in het land? Vindt u dat andere landen het ook zouden moeten toelaten?

6) Do you think that Holland has a good health care policy?
Vindt u dat Holland een goed gezondheidszorgsbeleid heeft? You might want to say Nederland instead

7) What do you want to change in your country?
Wat zou u willen veranderen aan uw land?

8) What do you prefer in the Dutch way of living?
Prefer over what?

9) Do you think that the country have a good level of education?
Vindt u dat het land een goed opleidingsniveau heeft?

10) Are you interested with the next election for the European deputies? Do you think that the country will have a good level of participation?
Bent u geïnterreseerd in de komende EU-verkiezing? Denkt u dat het land een goed deelnamesniveau zal hebben? This last question makes very little sense to me

11) Can you teach me some Dutch useful words?
Kan u mij een paar nuttige Nederlandse woorden leren?

Moved to a more suitable subforum. Can't help you with answers, though, as I'm not Dutch.
