Dutch can be a difficult language for foreigners to learn. Mainly because the Dutch use a lot of slang phrases. Here are some of the phrases you will most commonly hear in The Netherlands. Use a few of these and you’ll sound just like an Old Hollander.
1. “Doe even normaal”
Literal translation: Just do normal
What it means: Get a grip
In the Netherlands, it’s important to always be composed and to never make a big scene, even if you’re upset. So don’t get mad. Just be normal.
