Wat vind jíj van het Engels?

As part of my research I’m doing a questionnaire among Dutch people, mainly focused on their attitudes towards English. To date this has only been done to a limited extent among small segments of the population. This questionnaire is aimed at Dutch people of all ages and walks of life.

The questionnaire is in Dutch and is divided into three sections.

  • Section I asks for some personal information – age, sex and the like.
  • Section II revolves around Dutch people’s uses of and attitudes towards English.
  • Section III involves a grammaticality judgement task, in which respondents are asked to correct a number of English sentences.

The questionnaire takes about 15 minutes and responses are anonymous. We will be collecting responses until 1 June 2013.

Calling all Dutch people: please help us by filling in the questionnaire, and passing it on to your family, friends and colleagues! You can also spread the link via Facebook or Twitter. Your help is much appreciated.

For more information, feel free to contact me.

  1. The worst thing about English is other Dutch people commenting on your use of the language. Especially when it turns out that you were actually using a correct sentence or pronunciation… (Which happens all too often.)

    Not saying I’m perfect. 😉


  2. Just took part in your inquiry / investigation / poll. (Using the French word “Questionnaire” is a little bit posh, isn’t it?).
    Our impediment is not only grammar but also Dutch-English lookalikes.
    I remember a colleague of mine when offering his chair to a visitor: “Please sir, take my stool”.
