1) For those of you who have already been there, does not knowing much Dutch make it difficult to get around the city and interact with people?
2) What would be the best way to learn Dutch? Has anyone ever learned Dutch through Rosetta Stone or another computer based language program?
I'm going there in June of next year, so I'm not in any rush. I would just like to start now or as soon as possible.
