Dutch is such an underrated language. It has a certain poetic melody to it that can be just as romantic as French, as sensual as Italian, and even as erotic as Spanish. It's unfortunate that not a lot of people apart from the Dutch themselves know how to speak the language. Or are even interested in learning it. No matter, it's still a language worth preserving and speaking especially when you're in its motherland, the Netherlands. And fortunately, the country's capital, Amsterdam, is a great place to learn it too. just check out these amazing Dutch-language schools.

And not just that, you'll be so well-versed with the language, it's as if it was your first language altogether. Most especially if you go for the school's individual courses where teachers will instruct you first-hand and on your own.
