Dutch is a member of the West Germanic language family spoken by some 20 million people around the world. It is spoken principally in the Netherlands (Holland), the northern part of Belgium (known as Flanders, which includes Brussels, Belgium's capital), as well as parts of France, Suriname, Aruba, the Netherlands Antilles, and by several groups within Indonesia. The type of Dutch that is spoken in Belgium is commonly known as Flemish while Dutch is official name of the language used in the Netherlands. Flemish can not be considered a separate language, but more of a closely-related dialect. Netherlandic Dutch differs in an number of ways from Flemish or Belgium Dutch, but the two are mutually intelligible. Some speakers resent the term "Dutch" because it is a derivative of the term Dietsch (or Diets) which is considered too close to the word Deutsch (which is the term Germans use for the German language). Still, there is no denying that Dutch is grammatically close to the German language in its written form, although it is very different in its spoken form. A speaker of one of these languages would likely require a good deal practice to understand speakers of the other language.
