Moroccans in the Netherlands speak more Dutch at home

The annual report from the Netherlands’ Institute for Social Research (Sociaal en Cultureel Planbureau) reveals that Moroccans in the Netherlands speak more Dutch at home.

The report notes that in 1996 all parents of school-age kids spoke Turkish or Moroccan at home. Among Turkish parents this percentage barely decreased, but among Moroccan parents, 20 percent now speak Dutch at home.
