Soccer is important and especially during these games. So it is useful to know some words, some phrases to make a good impression and of course I’ll tell you all about the background. Why are we all orange? Why do we need to win from Germany? Is it safe to go to the pub and watch a game?

  1. I just discovered recently on iTunes and I am hooked! I have a friend in the Netherlands and I can’t wait to surprise her with my Dutch! Thank you very much for the lessons. I especially enjoyed Lesson Two’s, “I am from San Diego” as I am from San Diego. The most recent one about the World Cup, or as you say the World Championships is great too.

    Hup Holland Hup!

  2. hi,

    I live in america and i think the show is cool. I have just signed up for the podcast. I play a lot of soccer and i want to start going overseas with my futbol team and play in tournaments and when traveling the country during the tournament i wanted to be able to speak the native language. since i know my family can’t speak andy dutch and I rely on them. Plus Holland sounds like it’s a cool place and i want to visit.
