Discovering the Dutch: course for international students

25 January 2018

How can we study, teach and work more effectively with the Dutch? Despite the seeming easy-going and tolerant attitude of the Dutch, outsiders find that the Dutch can be a people of confusing and sometimes frustrating paradoxes: how, for example, to reconcile their directness in contrast to their sense of privacy or their slow decision-making processes in contrast to the strength of their agreements. Discover underlying reasons why the Dutch think, learn, act and interact in the ways they do, while at the same time gaining deeper insight into your own culture.

Free workshop: 8 February 2018, Location: room 1312.0118 of the Harmony Building, 18:00-19:00!

Start course: 22 February 2018, Rate: 59 euro.
