Hobbit version?! haha nah I don't feel that way.
Listening to dutch (and swedisch but to a lesser extent) is kinda frustrating for Germans,
because you understand like 70% of the words, but often still can't follow what is being said if people talk fast.
But also I'm from the south so I had much less exposure to dutch than someone living closer.
It's funny how different things seem from different perspectives.
Russian for example sounds very aggressive to most Germans (with all the hard RKS, KSCH, NPFTCH sounds or whatever)
all the Russian I know think Russian is very smooth and "round" and German is aggressive sounding.
