I'd love to learn some dutch. I can only say 4 sentences that I need at work. I don't even know really how to write them, I'll try...

Mag ik even uw filiaalnummer? (May I have your store number?)
Mag ik even uw naam? (May I have your name?)
Een nederlandstalige collega zal uw terug belle. (A dutch speaking colleague will call you back.)
Ik spreek helas keen nederlands. (Unfortunately don't speak dutch.)

Monique, correct me if I made mistakes. I only need to say those sentences so I don't really know about the writing... Laughing

I'd love to learn more though!!! Very Happy

Monique, I'd love to learn Dutch as well. My mother's family is Dutch-Irish (with some Cherokee Indian thrown in)...it would be really neat to learn how to speak the language of my ancestors Smile.

CÚcile, I just suggested it because you could tell us there what you want to know (sentences etc.) and you can write it in English and then we'll tell you the german sentences. I just asked you to join us there so nobody will get confused with dutch and german in this thread. Wink

Hi Romy

You really are good!!! tell me if you want more to learn.
Dutch is not an easy language with all the grammar. It is even for us difficult to understand it all Rolling Eyes

Have a great day
Smile Monique

It's interesting for someone working on German, I can guess in many instances what the Dutch words mean as they have the basis of the German words!

That's the funny thing, I don't really speak more than those 4 sentences but sometimes when my dutch speaking colleagues at work are busy the call get to all the other agents who don't speak dutch. So sometimes I get them and I say those sentences and after saying the one 'Unfortunately I don't speak dutch' some often say 'But you do speak dutch' and I always say 'No I don't sorry'. The funny thing is I often understand what their problem is but I cannot answer them. It is funny because some words really are similar. Laughing Wink
