Why I Study Dutch


I started studying at the University of
Sheffield in order to study Dutch. I’m studying Dutch. I study Dutch. I’m studying Dutch. I study Dutch. I’m studying Dutch. I study Dutch. I really enjoy studying Dutch. I really love Germanic languages. I just really like the sound of the language. A really interesting language. Holland and Belgium have a very interesting
history. I really like the Netherlands. It’s an incredible language to learn. Dutch isn’t as hard as it seems. It’s amazing to be able to hold a proper
conversation in Dutch… It’s been very easy to learn. … after only studied it for 9 months. It’s great fun to speak it. Yeah, it’s really fun. We’re quite competent. The subject leaders here are really good. The department is the best you’ll ever be
a part of. The teaching staff really make it accessible. There’s a real community feel. We did a play which is really cool. Everyone gets along with each other. This summer I am going to do a research project
with the British Library. Class sizes are smaller. It’s just fun. It’s really fun to do a ‘niche’ degree. The uniqueness of studying Dutch really stood
out to me. And I feel like it’s given me a speciality. That’s why I came to Sheffield. You will never regret studying Dutch with
the University of Sheffield. Features parts of ‘After the Soft Rains’
