Dutch in Basel

Dear EFers, I am not the kind who ask all the time for favours. Nowadays, however, I really miss speaking Dutch - I was wondering if there are Nederlanders in Basel up for something involving speaking and exchanging in Dutch.
I am fluent, it's about keeping up and refreshing, not learning. (one always learns in a way, but you understand what I meant) And frankly, it's also about being social and a good chat with educated people.

Can't help you with the Dutch, but they sell poffertjes during the Christmas market, if you want to get a taste of Holland - usually round the back of Barfi.

Eet smakelijk!

How's a Belgian chat for you, also good? Not sure it will be educated but we can try

Re: Dutch in Basel

I met with a Dutch friend this morning, she told me about a new social group for Dutch speakers. They will be meeting at 7.30pm in Paddy's (maybe in the new room upstairs) this Friday, any Dutch speakers welcome. If I get any more details I will post them. Hope this helps.

Re: Dutch in Basel

It is like you read my mind Faltrad, I am not native but I want to practice the Dutch I do know. My husband is Dutch so we might pop up this Friday...I think I really want to take some refresher classes!
Any one knows of a good teacher???

Re: Dutch in Basel

Sorry I can't make it... fever tonight. I shouldn't have gone to work in the first place, but that's another debate. I stay in - I would love to hear more about Dutch meetings in Basel.
Bedankt en prettige kerstdagen!

Flanders=Vlaanderen....

Flemish= person from Flanders or the un-recognized dialect of Dutch which we speak.

Pfff Miereneuker..of is het MiereNneuker

When ever i say Flanders people chuckle and say " okelidokely ",hence me giving up explaining

The brightest one i had in Ireland as a lady said " Ah yes Belgium, thats the capitol of Brussels right? " ..slowly walk away joey..don't harm the lady,she doesn't know better..

Re: Dutch in Basel

I am reaching out... trying hard not to stay in bed with herb tea the whole week. A cold, no drama.
PM sent, my guess is that one should rather not write Dutch in here.

Re: Dutch in Basel

Aah for the few friendly words of dutch/flemish we write here, it won't harm anyone

beside that, maybe it will bring out more dutch and flemish people out of the woodworks on EF

Re: Dutch in Basel

Moet ik nu ook bewijzen dat ik de taal machtig ben voordat Nederlanders en Vlammingen zich te melden durven?
Shall I now also prove that I really speak the language before Dutch and Flemish people dare to reply?

Geloof het wie dat wil, maar ik was toen zelfs leraar Duits in Amsterdam. Ik kan niet zeggen dat ik in mijn hoofd die twee talen makkelijk uitelkaar kan houden. Maar ik doe mijn best.
Believe it or not, I even was teaching German in Amsterdam at that time. I can't say that I easily can keep these two languages clearly distinct in my head, but I do my best.

Re: Dutch in Basel

ach, jullie zijn toch "vlamingo's"

(word play Flemish/Flamingo, it works in dutch due to spelling ambiguity v/f)

There was this language and spelling game on tv, Flanders against Netherlands. Usually, the Flemish always win.
