Is it ok to say ''Ik ben uit Nederland''?
In Belgium they do say Ik ben van Nederland (actually…Ik ben van België) ;) but this is not common in the Netherlands (only in some dialects I think).
That was my answer Susande. And I would have reported it. But having read your comment, I have changed my mind.. ;-)
Not really, although people will understand you, it does sound wrong.
So it's written Nederland without an s, but pronounced Nederlands?
The article "the" was not even an option here for "Netherlands". But in Enflish, its aleays "the Netherlands", no? Is there a rule about this?
The Netherlands --> Nederland
Dutch (language) --> Nederlans
Dutch (person) --> Nederlander
Dutch (as an adjective) --> Nederlands/Nederlandse
