To me a home is a place where I feel comfortable and connected to other people. In fact, a home to me can be anywhere around the world because it is not just a house, it is a feeling. I believe that you can create this feeling, so that you can create your home.

My mission is to make you feel home in the Netherlands by offering classes in which you will learn the Dutch language, understand more about the Dutch culture and connect with other people.

A couple of years ago I started working as a Dutch teacher with the motivation to help people with building up a new life in the Netherlands. But after a while I noticed that a lot of my students did not feel home in the Netherlands. They put effort in learning Dutch, but they had struggles to be part of the Dutch society. Mainly because they still did not understand the Dutch culture, customs and believes. This made me realise that there is something missing in the regular Dutch courses.

That is why I came up with the idea to create my own courses under the name The Dutch Life. Everything The Dutch Life offers is a mix of language, culture and connection with other people so it will contribute directly to the feeling of being home in the Netherlands.

Is the feeling of being home not the best feeling there is?
