My impressions are that we attract numerous foreign visitors (including university staff and students) and that we have not discouraged very many native Dutch speakers. Of course, being a foreigner who also has trouble with the local language, I admit being somewhat biased in this matter.

Thanks for the input! Like I said, we're not really planning it as a Dutch-only group, thus maybe really proposing English as the lingua franca (unless no non-native speakers are not there) isn't such a bad idea.
