    If you speak Dutch, or maybe German, I could really use some help. Back in November I sent a bunch of money to a shoe store in the Netherlands. I picked out a bunch of things (LSA shoe box and Saphir products) and there has been nothing but problems with the order. First the shoe box was damaged by UPS. So they had to order another one. When they received that, they sent the order by DHL, but DHL returned it back to them (twice), and now the shoe shoe store says DHL lost the order. They haven't responded to my emails. They are kinda slow at responding, but I would really like help speaking to them. I could send you a couple of bucks, or if I have something in your size, I could hook you up http://tinyurl.com/ag6r3wd

    I do speak Dutch, having lived there for a while and married one of them, also for a while. But I'm not on here enough or available offline enough to help directly, sorry. It is a simple language made challenging neither by its grammar nor its spelling, but by its curious pronunciation.

    However, having [as above], it is a fact that almost everyone in Holland speaks English. Bus drivers, shop assistants, checkout girls in supermarkets - everyone. Sometimes well enough to embarass native English speakers with their fluency and vocabulary.

    If that fails, Google Translate may become your friend.

    Yes, I speak Dutch. I am Dutch. Shoot me an email and let me know how I can help. I am based on the West Coast (Portland, OR).
