Hi Milora,Milora wrote:Hello,
I'm not originally from The Netherlands either. I'm from Finland and moved to here about 2 years ago and started to cosplay last year. ^^ I do know some dutch now but it bothers me that most ppl always think in there that you are dutch and so they come at you and start to talk dutch... I'm sure though that most of the dutch people will talk english afterwards when you say that you can't talk dutch.
If you want to have some company to spend time and talk to, I would be glad to hang out with you!
Sorry for the late reply! I just came back to check the Forum today, since it seemed a bit quiet here for awhile, as the convention is still half a year away! ^^; But time flies!
It's great to hear about others outside of NL also visiting this convention! Yes, from what I've heard, Dutch people are are capable/willing to speak in English if they find out you don't speak Dutch. My local convention is across a river from Canada, so we do get Canadians, but to me it's not so unusual, since it's just a a matter of driving in a tunnel to get here. (I suppose it's like England to France.) I forget that European countries are connected like our states. (I promise I'm not ignorant, just that sometimes I forget to think about things in that perspective!)
At the moment I'm still looking at flight tickets to AMS... They don't seem to want to drop... D: If I can make it happen, I'm planning a week long visit in NL before hitting Den Haag for AnimeCon.
At the moment I'm saving up to attend a convention in Texas with a friend in February, called Anime Matsuri. ^^; (The highlight for me, is I hope I get to see Reika. I understand she attended AnimeCon in 2015! Hoping she will visit NL in June too!)
Yes, sure, let's keep in touch!
