    Did you speak Dutch when you moved to the Netherlands or not?

    Thinking about moving back the Belgium but don't really know how things would work for Gem as he doesn't speak Dutch...

    Any ideas?

    Hoi Skweeky..no I had top learn it from scratch. Best is for Gem to watch television programs with "Dutch" sub-titles.. "Read" the papers daily... and you make sure everyone is gossiping about him constantly, that way curiosity will assist him and he will be encouraged to learn..!

    Another good reason is longevity...I heard on the news today...People living in Scotland have 70% more chance of having a heart attack that those living in south-east England. I suppose it would be asking too much for Gem to go and live in Kent...

    Two more good reasons are Belgian beer and Dutch wiet!

    Nope..my visit to the Netherlands was intended to be a holiday. However I found work within two weeks..the rest is history. I am sure the same will go for Gem. There is plenty of work at the moment and with your assistance he should feel at home immediately after the first beer (Jupiler).

    I would go for it Skweeky and Gem

    I sold myself as a sex slave to one of the most beautiful Dutch woman one can imagine. She was at the top of an international drugs ring that was mainly involved in the selling of hash and cocaine...

    It's well known fact that English men are well sought after by continental women as they are known as great lovers and never ever in need Viagra.

    I will tell you tomorrow about my wife's (ex) white bicycle, ET...

    I worked for a while doing temporary work..cleaning at Schiphol Airport.. as a courier and my favorite was as stud.....if you do decide to move back home..then Gem should have a rudimentary knowledge of Dutch like.." Where is the benefit's office located? " Or " Where is the local Coffee Shop? " that sort of thing...
