Dutch Language and Culture

One of the essential attributes for a successful expat hire is to make sure they learn about the Dutch language and culture.

Dutch Language Training

Even though many Dutch nationals speak English to understand the local culture better, understanding the language is desirable.

We advise on the different courses available, from online to face-to-face, business to a conversational language course.

For some Non-EU nationals, it is mandatory to pass the civic integration exam (Inburgeringsexamen). Of which understanding of dutch language, history and culture are part of the exam. 

Culture Training

The cultural training is tailor-made to provide practical information and advice on the various aspects of living and working in the Netherlands. The course is available for individuals, couples, families and groups. 

The Netherlands is a great country with an even more wonderful culture. But when not properly prepared, an expat could find him/herself confused by some of the common cultural tendencies.

“All steps of settling down met my expectations. All my questions have been promptly answered and I could always count on assistance.“
