After Russian last month, we are proud to announce a new language on EasyExpat. All our articles and sections are available in Dutch, beside the existing English, German, French, Italian, Spanish, Russian and Dutch languages. All sections including classifieds, jobs and tools are also available in Dutch (with the exception of the forums, still in the 5 different languages which are available for posting).
Dutch is a West Germanic language spoken by over 22 million people as a native language, and over 5 million people as a second language.
Most native speakers live in the Netherlands, Belgium, and Suriname, with smaller groups of speakers in parts of France, Germany and several former Dutch colonies. It is also the parent language of several creole languages as well as of Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa and the most widely understood in Namibia.
