Introduce yourself. What are your hobbies, where do you go to work or school, what does your family look like. In this conversation you also understand what Dutch people tell about their life.

Furthermore, it is also very practical:

Google maps is helpful, but asking for directions is much more fun! You will also be able to explain to others how they can get to your house. For coffee with a cookie. Did you know that coffee with a cookie means you only get one cookie? Go on, laugh about it!

What if you get lost?

You obviously want to be able to order something at a cafe or a restaurant. Or be able to talk about traditional Dutch meals. Maybe even understand the recipe for pepernoten!

'Waiter! Can I have a coke, a whistle and a wine?'

Every culture has their own customs. You will hear more about it! And if you would like to, you can come to the many different activities organised by NedLes. Singing in the pub together, a trip to the museum or into the polder.
