Tell me your funniest experience with Dutch/Flemish speaking people?

I always get the greetings wrong. I know in the US it is traditional to hug a long lost family member, while in Holland you do the kiss-kiss-kiss. So when I saw my Aunt a few years back I went in for a long bear-hug, and she tried to pull away to give the 3 pecks. Needless to say, it was awkward.


Hi, My name is Hans. I moved to NYC 11 months ago. I work in Education consulting in Brooklyn. I was born in theUS, but heb nederlandse afkomst. I can speak a little Dutch, but would like to use it & learn more, which is why I'm joining Dutch Meetup!
