The third edition of Speak Dutch Day run by Direct Dutch Institute is coming up and is all about helping you improve your conversational skills!

About Speak Dutch Day 2017

Direct Dutch Institute in The Hague presents Speak Dutch Day (Spreek Nederlands Dag) in the Central Library, intended for expats who want to speak Dutch in public more often.

International people often don’t get enough opportunities to practise their Dutch. Frequently they get an English reply when they attempt to speak it. At Speak Dutch Day, everyone is encouraged to only speak Dutch at any level!

Speak Dutch Day activities

After attending a free speed masterclass with helpful Dutch phrases, small groups will follow a Dutch volunteer out into the centre of The Hague to test if the staff in restaurants and cafes will let them speak Dutch.

At the end of the day, the Direct Dutch Trophy is handed out to the shop or restaurant with the highest score.

Anybody who is interested in speaking Dutch is welcome! Participation is free, but registration is required. For more information, click here.
