Languages Henk Jan Nootenboom

Excellent, good

English English Fluent, like a second mother tongue.
Nederlands Dutch is my mother tongue, handy in just a small part of the world.
German German Good enough for a normal conversation, but with a Dutch accent. Reading is fine, for writing I definetely need a spellchecker.
Afrikaans Afrikaans Excellent reading and understanding. Verbally good.

Other languages

French French just ok, high school level.
Malay Malay Fine for everyday things, ordering food goes extremely well. Good enough for a simple conversation.
Chinese Chinese
Hardly worth mentioning, but still sufficient for a comfortable holiday in China.
