When I go to Amsterdam, I find it very easy to read signs, menus, simple things like that - dutch words often times are similar to either german or english, so if you can speak those two languages you can usually get the general meaning of something written in dutch.

But I don't understand a word of spoken dutch - beyond "thanks" and "hello" anyway!
