    And for entertainment and educational added value :

    Dutch language looks quite a bit like German.

    Here in Holland it is not very uncommon that german tourists start speaking in german to dutch folks, after which the dutch folks often talk back in german or in english or ... in dutch, and then the german tourists would usually continue talking in german

    "Club blad" is often referred to as the chess club magazine at a chess club in Holland.
