Why should you learn Dutch? So many Hagenaars speak English fluently. So why invest time and money into the study of a language of which even the Dutch will point out that it is very difficult and even impossible.

Nonsense, it is a misunderstanding that Dutch is impenetrable. Vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation are not that difficult, compared to other languages. Yet, it is because of this misunderstanding that so many internationals eventually leave the Netherlands without ever having tried to speak a word of Dutch or to mingle with its speakers. When they leave the country, it is with a feeling of frustration. Moving around in circles of internationals, caused them to remain outsiders in Dutch society.

In this workshop Ruud Hisgen will show you how much fun it is to learn Dutch and that you can learn to speak it in a short time with a minimum of effort.

TIME:  12:00 – 12:30
