Quiz Night in Dutch Posted by on Nov 27, 2016 in Culture

Last week, the husband and I were invited to a quiz night to raise money for a camping trip. I was a bit nervous about how fast my thinking would be for a quiz night in Dutch. There are many questions to answer and you only have a short amount of time to do it, so having to ask what stuff means is very time-consuming for the team.

  3. In welk lichaamsdeel vind je het aambeeld?
  4. Waar komt het drankje ouzo vandaan?
  5. Welke stad wordt bedoeld met “de eeuwige stad”?
  6. In welke zee ligt Aruba?
  7. Hoe heette de eerste nummer van Britney Spears?
  8. Hoeveel snaren heeft een gitaar gewoonlijk?
  9. Hoe noem je de lamp die als koplamp in de auto wordt gebruikt?
  10. Welke trui mag de wereldkampioen wielrennen dragen?

(Answers at the end)

About the Author: Karoly Molina

Since I was a little girl, I was fascinated with languages and writing. I speak English, Spanish, Italian, Dutch and a little bit of French. I am a writer, reader, language teacher, traveler, and a food lover! I now live in The Netherlands with my husband Riccardo, our cat Mona, and our dog Lisa, and the experience has been phenomenal. The Dutch culture is an exciting sometimes topsy-turvy world that I am happily exploring!
