My current Dutch proficiency is at a point where a native Dutch adult probably has better English speaking than my Dutch speaking, but I can carry on a decent conversation with kids. My listened understanding is leaps and bounds ahead of my speaking ability.
@wdelaet this would have been in Canada when I was probably 9 years old. Talking to friends with kids in Scouts now, I probably got it by providing a letter from my Dutch teacher (my dad).
