Does Lleyton speak Dutch???

I just wonder, have any of you an idea if Lleyton learns to speak Dutch? Because I sure would like to hear him talk it. Maybe he has the cute little accent of Kim ( because Kim is from Limburg you know). It would be so adorable!!!

An, 100% Lleyki!!!!

Think Lleyton mentioned it last year. I remember that he said that he is trying to learn Dutch.

Yeah he said on Australian Tv interview last year or maybe it was the start of this year that he was trying to learn how to speak Dutch, but he wasn't very good and he only knew a few words. But he wouldn't say any. He also said that his mother bought him a learn to speak Dutch book and that lots of fans had given some as well so he has quite a collection.

That's so sweet! I'd love to hear him say something in Flemish one day.

And I'll be seein' you when all my days boil down
For now we'll say goodbye

Last year in Rosmalen he was asked if he could speak some Dutch by Dutch TV. He said he can say a few words but when the interviewer asked him to say them, he blushed and gently declined. lol
