When visiting a foreign country for a short visit or a longer-term stay, one of the most challenging aspects is often the local language.
And when it comes to funny expressions, Dutch certainly doesn’t disappoint.
Many everyday Dutch words also raise a smile when translated into English, such as “hand shoes” meaning gloves and “garden snake” for a hose.
However, once you have mastered the basic pleasantries and everyday phrases, you can start to experiment with parts of the language that are not generally known by non-native speakers.
Expressions such as “as if an angel is peeing on your tongue” and “to fall with your nose in butter” are thankfully explained here.
