I've been watching the Dutch TV show "Westenwind" and I got hooked on the language. It's so great! :D
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.

Westenwind is on tv in Yugoslavia? :eek:

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.
