Hi!

Post by Oldamsterdamlover » Mon Jul 24, 2017 6:17 pm

I decided to learn Dutch because I think it is a charming language. I love the way it looks and sounds. In some ways it's very like English, and in others, very different, and that interests me.

I have been to Amsterdam twice, the first time in 1991, and the second time last year. My brother lives there in a houseboat.
I hope to go back. I have been trying to learn it on and off. But I am determined. I look forward to exploring this site more.
