Save Portuguese at Utrecht University

Most Dutch leading people constantly urge us Dutch to think more globally. Unfortunately most of them seem to think that a knowledge of English is more than enough. Even the knowledge of our direct neighbouring languages (German and French) is neglected. We are living in a rich country, so why is it impossible to mantain long established language studies like Portuguese, not the least language in the world. An example of typical Dutch provincial short term thinking.
