    Oh that's amazing! I'm trying to pick up a couple of words here and there haha I think because I speak Swedish and a bit of German it shouldn't be tooo hard to partially learn, because there are certain similarities between them?!
    Haha thanks It's relatively easy to pick up phrases I think, so I'm sure you'll be fine! It's very similar to German

    Well there's English anyway but I don't think learning Dutch will be that difficult
    no wayy, I'm very jealous haha!! I'm just worried it's going to be an issue when looking for a job, but that's something to worry about once I get there aha
