I was on the E train heading home and I heard an elderly couple speaking Dutch who were clearly lost. I leaned across the aisle and (in Dutch) asked if they needed help. They nearly fell over that someone spoke Dutch to them on the subway.
In order to speak with my Oma and Opa, I had to speak Dutch growing up. I'd love a chance to brush up (more than the weekly call to my Oma affords) and learn more!
