The 3rd most spoken language of Germanic origin, right after English and German, Dutch is spoken by approximately 28 million people around the world.
It is the native language to almost 23 million people and a second language to another 5 million people.
Although it is the official language of the Netherlands, Dutch has the same status in Suriname, Aruba, Belgium, and the Dutch Antilles.

Dutch has developed into the language we know today over the course of centuries. It is very similar to English and German and also shares
some similarities with the Scandinavian languages.
The standard form of the Dutch language that is taught in schools and spoken by the government and media is known as Algemeen Beschaafd Nederlands (ABN), which translates to General Civilized Dutch.
However, there are a lot of different regional dialects found in the Netherlands, as well as in Flanders – the Dutch-speaking part of northern Belgium – where they are collectively known as Flemish and include plenty of words loaned from English and French.
As it’s very similar to German, it doesn’t come as a surprise that you can find incredibly long words in the Dutch language. The longest one is 53 letters long:
Kindercarnavalsoptochtvoorbereidingswerkzaamhedenplan – preparation activities plan for a children’s carnival procession.
