Dutch is a beautiful language

I've been watching the Dutch TV show "Westenwind" and I got hooked on the language. It's so great!
I really want to learn it, just I don't know if it's possible possible here, and besides, it looks rather difficult...

It is rather difficult but the best way to learn it is to come study over here and you'll learn it in no time (relatively speaking ).

If all language were circus tricks, Dutch would be equivalent to knife throwing

Funny that, Dutch is one of the closest related languages to English.

it's not that funny. they have the same roots, just like swedish, german etc.

Men när natten är ljus - I ditt sjuttiotalshus
Och du är ånga, spår av ett moln
I en dröm om att fly till någonting nytt

Och du håller så hårt och när längtan blir svår
Så är jag din, din, din att ta med
Att ta ut, att ta in i någonting nytt

Yes, every night at 11 PM, well it's actually finished recently. I have no idea how it ended up here really.
I thought it was an OK show, the first couple of seasons. Later I watched only because of the language.

Of course we got subtitles, but I always pay attention to the language spoken in any foreign films or TV shows.

The only Dutch I know is "Thalle" and that translates to "Divine Goddess" or so I've been told!
