Yes And No. You might write 'Netherlands' as part of an address, but strictly speaking, the name of the country, in English, is 'The Netherlands'.Originally Posted by sanukeeeeeeeeeee
That's true. You wouldn't say "The Switzerland", and you wouldn't say "The The Netherlands."I read there is no need to use any article before the name of the country.
There are a few countries that include 'The' as part of the name. Another example is The Phillipines.
