Why isn't Dutch more popular?

Given it's strategic position in Europe, and ease to learn.

      English is a Germanic language with a lot of Latin loanwords. Loanwords do not change a language's descent.

        The latinization of English find much deeper than loanwords. The grammar has been hugely influenced by French towards simplification.

      It's grammatically harder English. Just learn English. English is much more relevant. Plus, Dutch sounds silly as frick.

    Another factor not mentioned already is given the Dutch's historical preference for transactional and merchantile relationships, they had little interest in imposing their language throughout their empire and would often either use, or even develop a lingua franca that worked for its intended use, rather than teach anyone Dutch.
    The Netherlands itself values multilingualism quite highly as it allows them to engage with much larger economies with relative ease. There's not really a tangible benefit to learning Dutch since the Dutch likely know two or more other major languages. In my experience as well, they don't really engage with anyone trying to learn Dutch in a positive way either and look at their own language with cynicism.

    There's about 17 million Dutch stuck between 80 million german speakers, 60 million english speakers, and 50 million french speakers.
    Therefore most of them learn one of the three or all of them rather than trying to make the bigger nations learn Dutch

      you can, but some are apparently a bit difficult
      as for the tards who think it's silly english, dutch believe it or not actually has some grammar and it's way closer to german

    nederlands is helemaal niet makkelijk om te leren, de taal zelf is kanker autistisch en klinkt altijd kinderachtig zonder uitzonderingen.

            dat is voor interpretatie vatbaar
            ik heb onlangs nog met een tante gesproken die op bezoek was in een uithoek van vlaanderen en ze was daadwerkelijk verbaasd dat iedereen zo beleefd en behulpzaam was
            en wij hebben ook onze verzuurde steden, en ik moet zuchten telkens ik in de buurt van br*ssel kom. een stad van enorm historisch belang in de lage landen die de voorbije 150 jaar de grond is ingeboord. antwerpen is er nog maar dat wordt intussen ook overspoeld door "nieuwe" belgen. ik kan enigzins tussen de regels lezen en ik ben vrij zeker dat bart de wever dat impliciet expliciet heeft vermeld, de groenen zijn namelijk de moslimpartij tegenwoordig. vroeger waren dat de socialisten
