In Flanders they speak Vlaams which may be considered to be a part of the Nederlandse language. It is however different. In the Netherlands we would not say they speak Nederlands. To me it means that Dutch has two translations for the Nederlandse language Vlaams _and_ Nederlands. GerardM 09:05, 16 Jul 2004 (UTC)
Added rfc because of slightly unusual format translations. Also languages need dewikifying.22.214.171.124 15:14, 8 Jun 2005 (UTC)
But the Dutch language IS spoken in Flanders ánd in The Netherlands. We have exactly the same grammatics and rules. However the pronounciations are slightly different and in the day-to-day language there are used sometimes slightly other words. But the basics are identical.
