Nouns aren't capitalized like in German?

Just out of curiosity, if a Dutchman and a German were to speak to one another how much would they be able to understand from each other?

With no training, not all that much. But Dutch children learn some German in high school, so we have a bit of an advantage. My German friends tell me that they can understand very little when I speak Dutch.

I think the similarity is fairly close to, for example, French and Spanish. Knowing one will make the other easier to learn, but people can't really communicate with the other language without studying it.

As native German speaker with good English language skills, I'm usually able to understand some words and pick up the overall topic if people speak slowly. But in real life, f.e. listening to Dutch radio stations or when at the supermarket checkout, I totally fail at comprehension^^
