Hey guys.

My school is relatively small (500 or so students in the whole high school), and I live in the States. We just got around a dozen exchange students from The Netherlands today, and I was wondering if there were any UGers who live there. I'd like to know some ways to be nice to them and help them feel welcome, since their English isn't very good.

So how would you just say simple things like "Hello" and "How are you?"

EDIT: Thanks for your help.

Wave at them?

I love you =] I can't say I was very fond of you when we first started talking because you trolled the hell out of my threads, but after talking to you here I've grown very attached to you.

Yeah, write to my fanclub about it, honey.

Well besides random friendly gestures... like, ways to go out of my way and be nice, like learning some phrases in their language.

Hello = Hallo
How Are You = Hoe gaat het?( /Mag ik je bevredigen?(use only when all else fails))
And what is more, there's been a bloody purple nose and some bloody purple clothes that were messing up the lobby floor. It's just apartment house rules so all you 'partment fools remember : one man's ceiling is another man's floor.

That's below the belt. But most of the time Dutch people are pretty good at English so I think they will understand you most of the time.

Well yes, they should (they know some, but its a pretty limited vocabulary and really broken). I'm not saying they wouldn't understand me in English, but I think it'd be a lot nicer to try speaking to them in their own language.
