@abs Funny anecdote: Just had a conversation with a German who studied in the Netherlands. He was complaining how he didn't get the chance to learn Dutch. "I enter a bakery, say goedemorgen, they recognize my accent and reply in English!"
@ayo@abs They even do it when you are perfectly fine with Dutch or any other language but once they hear us talking in German, they switch over to German. Friends know Dutch, I never had the chance to learn it so far.
