What is the best thing you have experienced during your stay here?
Even though local people here speak the Dutch language, if they will come to know that front person doesn’t speak Dutch, they will immediately start talking in English. Which is a really appreciable thing. Even in office they speak English with each other for inviting you in their conversation.
