This is the kind of reasoning that triggers tensions between Flemings and Walloons I'm afraid... Who cares as long as they treat both communities equally? I don't care if my politicians speack French with a horrible Swiss German accent, as long as they do a good job.

It's not the same for a politician, though.
Most of them are not born with the knowledge that they will be a politician one day.

Our prime minister speaks awful Dutch but he does the job. That's no problem.

These royal people know from birth that they will be the monarch over a multi-language country. You pick up a language much more quickly when you're really young so they should learn both languages + German from the start.


Elisabeth is fluent in Dutch and in French (her parents are Frenchspeakers after all) but she needs extra lessons for her written French. But she's going to be our first monarch (if it still exists by then) to be perfect in Dutch.

This is because French is the superior language, tougher to master

Dexter was missing for some weeks... so we figured we needed another one... The house where we live is full with with babies/kids... Surely that doesn't really inspire us

It's not superior, but just more messy. The French like things messy. What a fucked up grammar they have. Zero logic.

This must be a record, no?

And while every network was focused on what's happening in Egypt, i.e. real news, our networks kept on talking about this royal news all evening long
Interesting that there will be two kings and three queens. I didn't know that would happen. I hope this new king is good. Good to hear the potential future queen is being raised with both languages. As you said, they know the position these children will be in from the moment they're born, so it makes sense that they are as truly bilingual as they can be.

Basically, because German has a tight structure, French doesn't.

German grammar is complicated but it's logical. It has a good structure and rules you can trust and depend on. Everything is constructed around a strong framework. Sure, there are exceptions to the rules but there aren' t that many and they even come up with tricks and tips to help you remember those exceptions.

French grammar is more a maze than a framework. It's complicated but each rule comes with a gazillion exceptions. Result, you can not depend on the rules. There's no logical structure there.

Then again, maybe German is easier for me to understand because my first language is a germanic language. German and Dutch are sister-languages.
Just like Andreea will have an easier time understanding the French grammar due to her first language being related to French, following similar grammar principles.


Remember that young guy with all those impressive imitations of various players. It was quite a hit with tennis fans. Babolat did a video with him and Rafa:

He's very tall.
