HOLLAND IN A NUTSHELL
Learning Dutch may sound a bit foolish in an international research environment. But the Dutch course at the Royal NIOZ Texel does bring some major advantages, in work and life. It is the prime reason that hundreds of PhD's and Postdocs have been attending the course. With great success.
Speaking and understanding Dutch helps. But the Dutch course will also show you some of the typical Dutch cultural phenomena. It will enable you to understand public signs at the TESO ferry to Texel or at a bus stop but will also simplify a conversation when buying 'boerenkool' at a local market.
Our newly certified beginners class will move on to the advanced Dutch course on November the 17th. Make sure you keep an eye on your inbox on the intranet.
