Cultural awareness

Our service provision extends further than the Dutch course alone. Our trainers understand what it’s like to move here and settle in a new country. Our Dutch for Expats courses introduce the participants to life here and the (hidden) idiosyncrasies that they will encounter. The result? Employees and spouses who settle quicker and make the move to the Netherlands more successful. Take a look at what our clients have to say.
