  1. Dear Alex, good question, hard to find the answer. First, in the Netherlands English has become a de-facto second language to many, so if you can make yourself understood in the UK then you should manage in the Netherlands. But it helps to at least understand the language, and preferably be able to speak it. Some university departments with a large foreign intake will organise a three or six week introductory course before the start of the Academic year : the “Delftse Methode” (Technische Universiteit Delft, http://www.tud.nl) gained fame, there also was an initiative at the Rijksuniversiteit Groningen. Looking further, on http://www.anglo-dutch.org.uk you’ll find a number of schools where Dutch is taught to people from Dutch families : this may not seem what you need, but contacting the person given as a contact can get you in touch with someone able and willing to teach Dutch. Duolingo -if I picked that up correctly- is a smartphone app which aims to get you to first understand, then speak, the language; I have not used it myself. Hope this helps you on your way!

  2. Hi,

    Zou aan de lijst van ‘Dutch organisations elsewhere in the UK’ de volgende organisatie kunnen worden toegevoegd:

    ‘The Bath – Alkmaar Twinning Association’.

    Een van onze doelstellingen is om een ‘focal point’ te zijn voor Nederlanders die in Bath en omgeving wonen. We zijn de oudste ‘twinning association’ in Europa, onze geschiedenis gaat terug tot de laatste jaren van de Tweede Wereld Oorlog (zie onze website).

  3. Mijn naam is Annemarijn Eerdmans en ik ben voorzitter van De Zeven Eiken school in Sevenoaks. Ik heb 2 aandachtspunten:

    1.Wij zijn dringend op zoek naar leuke leerkrachten om ons team te verstevigen! Wij geven les op maandagmiddagen van 16.30 – 18.45 aan 4-11 jarigen in Otford, vlakbij Sevenoaks, Kent. Mocht je een bevoegdheid hebben in onderwijs, of Nederlands gestudeerd hebben, neem dan contact met mij op via 0779988 4782 of mijn email adres.

    2. Op jullie website staat dat jullie onze website niet konden openen. Dat klopt want helaas moesten wij van server veranderen en ook van email/website adres veranderen. Onze contact gegevens zijn:
    Voorzitter: 07799884782 (Annemarijn Eerdmans-Parlevliet)
    Secretaris (voor aanmeldingen): 07917 184683 (Niels Busink)

    Hartelijk dank!!
    Annemarijn Eerdmans

    1. Dear Annemarijn, thank you for updating; have added reference to the teacher(s) sought, wishing you a quick resolution.
