Home in on Holland

This series of short lectures introduces your employees to some basic characteristics of Dutch culture and helps them to ‘home in’ on their new country. In twelve thematic twenty minute talks, your employees will get an accessible overview of everything they need to know about the Dutch, their history, their country and their ways.


All classes are highly interactive and focus on communication. All lectures in this series are highly accessible and actively involve your employees. They are a great starting point for group discussions and conversation exercises.


The lectures will be adapted to the students’ current level of Dutch. For example, when the series is taken as a supplement to a basic and/or elementary course, the first few lectures will be in English and, later on, in simple Dutch, using only the structures and vocabulary the students are familiar with.
