Understand the Netherlands in a new way
Dutch Discoveries organises courses and events for internationals living and working in the Netherlands. Their aim is to educate the international community about the local culture, in order for them to feel happy and more at home in this small but great country.
Dutch Discoveries has developed several courses for both newcomers and established internationals that give a detailed understanding of Dutch culture in an educational and entertaining manner. It’s also a great way to meet other expats!
Culture course structure
Across three sessions you will learn about many aspects of life in the Netherlands, exploring subjects such as history, politics, holidays, music, sports and food.
By discussing important local events and people, from both the past and present, you will gain a greater understanding of the Dutch culture and its people.
Course groups are small, varying in size from 10 to 15 people, to create an atmosphere that is intimate as well as interactive.
You can choose to follow this course in the morning or in the evening. The morning sessions will be held at carefully selected locations of interest in Amsterdam, and include a lecture, followed by a tour of that specific location.
The evening sessions will be held at a single location during which you will be offered favourite Dutch drinks and bites.
Dutch Discoveries is founded by Heleen and Jolene, two true Dutchies with a great passion for their country and an extensive knowledge of the Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular.
With professional backgrounds in the communication and advertising industries, Heleen and Jolene offer an unconventional and fresh approach towards sharing their cultural knowledge.
Dutch Discoveries also introduces participants to unique Dutch experiences and locations, thanks to their large local network.
Culture courses for businesses
For your colleagues or employees, Dutch Discoveries can provide various versions of the culture course based on the special demands of your company or industry. These tailor-made courses can be presented in the comfort of your office.
Dutch Discoveries also happily organises tours and events with a Dutch twist, custom-made to the specific wishes of clients.
