The Dutch language is the subject of this programme, more specifically a foreigner’s difficulty with it. David Swatling meets Dr. Robert Druce, editor of the new edition of “An Irishman’s Difficulty with the Dutch Language” and its sequel “Jack O’Neill’s Further Adventures in Holland”. He also talks to Irish writer Michael O’Loughlin who is working on a book on Amsterdam, called “The Fortress”.
