    Google Translate?

    So they send to addresses outside of the EU?

    Just email them or call them in English - most Dutch people can speak and read/write English.

    Thanks for the tips, I emailed them but they are out of stock until May. I'll put it on Airtasker to see if someone can get one for me.

    Here.
    My parents are Dutch, I can understand it at a rudimentary level but my reading comprehension is fairly bad.

    It's arguably the most useless language to learn. Everyone who speaks Dutch probably speaks English as well as French or German quite fluently.

    1. Banks and financial institutions speak Double-Dutch. Does speaking Dutch help?
    2. Does speaking Dutch help when participating in Dutch Auctions?

    If going out with a new g/f, you can also go Dutch.

    Or make a 'Dutch oven' for @datto

    Poffertjes are a Dutch pancake (Today being shrove Tuesday).

    I think you need to be able to speak dutch to operate a Dutch Rudder, unsure though.
