If you thought Dutch was hard already, just wait until you see these untranslatable Dutch words! 

Dutch can be a pretty tough language, especially when it comes to pronunciation. However, here at DutchReview we are very passionate about helping our readers learn this monstrous language. That is why we teamed up with Learn Dutch in order to bring you this fun lesson on untranslatable Dutch words. We also went through the effort of shooting a video just for you!

Untranslatable Dutch Words

As with any other language, Dutch also has some words that just cannot be translated into English. That is why learning them will make your Dutch friends super impressed with your language skills!

So in order to help you with scoring some brownie points with your friends in the Netherlands, we grabbed our camera equipment, tidied up our DutchReview office (that really means a lot!), and gathered the most useful yet funny untranslatable Dutch words possible! So grab a pen and paper, and repeat after our DutchReview teacher Elisanne!

Still think Dutch is a nightmare? Learn Dutch to the rescue!

Even though learning some untranslatable Dutch words may be easy enough, it is still not the same as being able to fluently speak it. Not to mention that most of the time classes are crazy expensive, or you just don’t have the time for Dutch lessons within your busy schedule.
