If you work at the High Tech Campus, you can take Dutch lessons right around the corner. Language Institute Regina Coeli is organizing four free workshops at The Strip in the month of February and in March, an eight-part Dutch course will be starting at the High Tech Campus.

Free Dutch workshops
To discover whether a Dutch course is right for you, try one of the free workshops. In the Perfect Pitch Presentation workshop you will learn to introduce and tell a bit about yourself in Dutch. In the two Coffee Corner Conversation workshop you get to learn how Dutch people make small talk on the work floor. What can you say if a colleague stops you in the coffee corner and says ‘Lekker weertje hè?’ (Nice weather, isn’t it?) or ‘Het is weer bijna weekend’ (It’s almost the weekend again!)? After taking this workshop, you will no longer feel tongue-tied and you will be able to keep the conversation going in Dutch. An added bonus: a half an hour before and after the workshops, you can drop in and ask the trainer any questions you might have about (learning) Dutch.
