Hmm. I'd like to disagree with you there. Have you seen the crap that english is?

In fairness, I've only really known how to speak/read dutch. Spelling may be harder

English is crappy too, but the Dutch grammar and sometimes words is just as confusing. I'm Dutch an we still have to learn it untill school ends, no poetry or writing after some time, just grammar, spelling and all that stuff ya know. For me, English can be messy, but its waaaay easier.

Speaking and reading Dutch is like the very very easy part my man.

Don't want to be impolite, but when I took a look at Dutch (just from interest), for me it's just like an arithmetic average of English and German, just digraphs look different.

Reading Dutch is reasonably easy to learn for someone who already knows English or German. They share a common ancestry and are relatively similar in both vocabulary and grammar. Speaking it will be tricky for pretty much everybody. Dutch use various sounds and pronunciations not (or very rarely) used in any other language.
Besides the tricky pronunciation, Dutch day to day language is laced with proverbs, idioms and contradictions. In one situation a sentence or word can mean one thing. In another situation it might mean something completely different. We know what it means since we use it every day. A foreigner might understand the words, but has no idea what they exactly mean.
