Event description

Description

Why is Dutch such an accessible language for English and German speakers? The answer is that these languages are all family-related. Ever wondered why many words in the Dutch language look so familiar at first sight? It is because of this kinship.


Recognising familiar features can help you build a large vocabulary in a short period of time. Before long, a new student is able to communicate with Dutch people. But be careful. Among these new assets you may encounter several false friends. The Dutch word 'slim' (smart), for instance, has totally different meanings in German and English. In this workshop we will take a look at English, German, French and other languages to see how they relate to Dutch.

Understanding these relations will help you gain more insight into the grammar and vocabulary of Dutch. You will learn Dutch faster with less difficulty. No knowledge of Dutch is required for this workshop.
