Sometimes your future depends on learning a new language. Refugees who want to find a job in the Netherlands have to reach a highl evel of Dutch. Therefore, a group of seven motivated Syrian refugees wanted to practice more Dutch with native speakers. Three students of the UG were willing to help the refugees and apply in practice their theoretical knowledge about learning a language. On the other hand, the refugees helped the students with their language research, resulting in both groups helping each other.
