After an enquiring about swimming lessons in English at the swimming baths in Wassenaar, it seems there is one set of prices for the Dutch lessons and another price for the English lessons, what would be an expected price to pay for swimming lessons? I thought the Dutch government had a very strict policy on swimming because of all the canals, so encouraging children to have lessons. It seems as though you can't go into any swimming pools without the A diploma.
I am British and my boyfriend is Dutch.We have already acknowledged a birth. When registering the birth, is it best to go for a Dutch birth certificate or an international one, or both? Is there any information about baby passports toobecause i want to travel back to the uk without the father now and again. Many thanks!
We are new here since sept, my daughter is at the British School, since this time she has been almost unbearable, I appreciate she is 14 and becoming a teenager but this quite delighful little girl has become a nightmare overnight. Not sure if there is something going on at the school, I have met with her school tutor but she says its ok, has anyone else have problems like this?
Wanted: English & English/Dutch families in NL As part of the Early Child Bilingualism project, currently being carried out by researchers from Utrecht University, the Meertens Institute in Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam, we are currently looking for families in the Netherlands with children growing up with English and Dutch. We’re looking for two kinds of children: (1) children who are being brought up with English and Dutch from birth, and (2) children who are being brought up with English from birth and who first come into regular contact with Dutch at a later age. If you belong to such a family and you might be willing to take part, please take a look at our site where you can find information about the goals of the project and what’s involved: http://ecb.childbilingualism.org If any (other) might be willing to take part, we'd greatly appreciate them contacting me. Many Thanks Dr. S.U.
At the moment I am writing my thesis for my bachelor of sports. This survey is about the current sports habits of expats living in The Hague and surrounding areas.Playing sports is good for your health, a great way to meet new people and above all: fun! We believe that expats should have the opportunity to play sports in The Hague. This is why we have started researching if the offer of sports meets the needs and demands of expats. With the results of this research we can respond to your requests in a more efficient way. It will only take you 3-5 minutes to complete this survey.Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions!Kind regards,TLClick here: Click here:http://www.questback.com/isa/qbv.dll/SQ?id=1320278-65255631-bLMoQYvb

I was on my back home from work last night after it was dark and walking along a typical town house street I was surprised to see so many of the houses without curtains or even nets in the windows. You could see people sat watching tv or making their evening meals and going about their evening business quite openly to anyone walking past outside. The Dutch are quite happy to have people looking in through their windows and appear quite unabashed at this. Very un-British of course, but why are they happy with this?
