    Most of German and Dutch is very similar. Both are Germanic language and so share a common ancestral language. I guess you could say that German and Dutch are cousins :yep:

    You would actually probably find German quite easy to learn :yep: I was just looking at the verb "zijn" and it is quite similar to the verb "sein" in German :yep:

    Ik ben - Ich bin
    Jij bent - Du bist
    Zij is - Sie ist
    Hij is - Er ist
    Het is - Es ist
    Wij zihn - Wir sind
    Zij zihn - Sie sind

    Ik and Ich are very similar. Zihn and Sind seem quite similar. And same goes for Ben/Bin, Is/Ist, Wij/Wir and Zij/Sie

    But you're on the phone 24/7 I'm not, prior to winning the political race, the national socialist party members of Germany saluted each other with the words 'Sieg Heil" which later became "Heil Hitler" when the big dog became fuhrer:fuhrer: therefore as grammar Nazi, I salute you sir Heil Grammar
