They both frequently speak English as a second language. If you watch football (don't call it soccer around Europeans), there's a Dutch player named Arjen Robben who speaks perfect English as if he were a through and through American. Many Belgian players in the EPL speak almost perfect English as well.

Of course, it's still respectful to learn a bit of their language.

I've had a few years of German in highschool, and the more time I spend there, the better my German becomes. Germans are gracious enough to accept your German, mistakes and all, and even compliment you on your German if you make a bit of an effort.
