Word Love

There a few dutch words that either don't translate well or just don't sound as special in English. When we leave holland, I hope we take these with us.

  • Gezellig and Gezelligheid
  • Eet Smakelijk
  • Lekker
  • Ja, Hallo! This one means what you think (yes, hello) but when pronounced with the right intonation, something I love to practice and must say I am pretty good at, it can mean WTF or, dude you are an idiot, or get out of my way...clearly it is a very useful bit of lingo
  • leuk - which I think means cool, at least that is how I use it
