Learning Dutch:

Mooi is a Dutch word (which rhymes with koi–as in the fish). It is the Dutch equivalent of the English word beautiful. If you ever find yourself in the Netherlands, and don't speak Dutch, and someone speaks to you, in Dutch, don't get nervous. Just wait a second. Think (or pretend you are). Then say with confidence: 
It pretty much works for anything. How was the park? 


 What do you think of this painting? Mooi.

 Wanna have coffee later? Mooi.
