Make your internationals feel at home in the Netherlands!

The Netherlands is ranked as one of the most difficult countries to make friends and connections (source). For many internationals this leads to loneliness and isolation. On top of that, the language is also so hard to learn, while speaking Dutch is required to truly fourish at home and in the workplace!

If your internationals are not integrated well in the country and workplace, they don’t feel at home here and the tendency for them is to leave.

Do you work for or represent an organisation with internationals? And do you find onboarding and integration of internationals in Dutch language and culture difficult? We want to help your employees feel at home!

Our approach

We are not like every other language school. We do not provide traditional language courses. You won’t find any grammar book or formal classroom here.

Instead, we have a unique aproach where we combine language learning with fun and interesting activities. We create informal, relaxed settings, where people mingle and practice together. This approach is more fun, more motivating and more effective than traditional language classes.

And, it goes much further than just learning the language. We connect natives with non-natives and provide opportunities to learn the local culture and quickly build a social network. This goes beyond what traditional language courses can provide!

Benefits for staff

  • The chance to actually get confident speaking Dutch in real situations.
  • An opportunity to connect with both natives and non-natives and quickly build a social network.
  • Lots of fun activities that increase well-being and team-building (see our calendar).
  • A way to contribute to society through community-building.

Benefits for the organisation

  • Better return-on-investment by retaining newly hired staff through better integration and well-being.
  • Opportunity to meet corporate social responsibility goals.
  • Extend the organisation’s reach by staff quickly build a local, but international social network.
  • Easy team-building scenarios with knowledgeable people at Dutch Language Café
