Love this series. Don't suppose you could do one in Gaelic / Irish or Welsh?

Thanks, I was thinking of doing at least one of those languages, so I'll see what I can do.

German as first language. Got 100%. But "pig" was the last one left I didn't know.

Yes I was interested about that one as well - apparently it's related to the Proto-Indo-European 'porkos' (and hence the Latin porcus), which I wouldn't have guessed but which makes sense given the p-b-v thing that happens between Indo-European languages. Apparently in English we have a word 'farrow' for a litter of piglets, but I'd never heard of that before.

Maybe it's somehow related to "Ferkel"

This was my association as well. But this and raspberry were the last two words I had left.

Pig was an easy one for me. Knowing that aardvark means "earth pig" in Afrikaans, I figured the Dutch word for pig would be similar. "Face" is the one that gave me the most trouble.

Got it 20/20 and all of it is either from close to English or from Jetpunk quizzes in Dutch. I’m pretty amazed with myself!

Being French (that only helped for raspberry though), speaking English and having sufficient knowledge of German, it's remarkably easy to get at least three quarters of them right. I guess that reputation of Dutch to be easy to learn for people who speak Germanic languages is in part well-deserved.

This is the closest foreign language to English - you should be able to get two thirds of them from sounding about right. A smattering of German and French covered the rest.

Great quiz

I agree. I didn't "know" any of them but guessed 100% - it's so similar to English.

Frisian is supposedly the closest living language to modern English. If you listen to it being spoken, it really does sound like what I imagine English would sound like if I were having a stroke while listening to it.

I don't knowingly know a single word in Dutch but with a basic knowledge of German and French, surprised myself with 100%!

Nice quiz series, thanks.
