18 March 2021. by Anne-Lise Artaud. We had a very lovely evening around a hot topic for us expat. How to raise multilingual children? This subject was presented and all our questions answered by an experienced researcher that has herself personal experience on this matter. It was very interesting to learn about the flexibility and resilience of children that from a young age are able to learn and retain different languages.
Language forms part of our identity
The Netherlands is a country that welcomes a large number of immigrants and expats, making it a very culturally rich and diverse nation. A part of this cultural diversity is the great variety of languages spoken both inside and outside the home. And, language forms an important part of who we are.
We are pleased to announce our new partnership with STE Languages!
Together we look forward to expanding resources for expats in Brabant.
STE Languages is a vibrant, intercultural hub where different cultures meet. Internationals come here to strengthen their language skills, which ultimately results in better performance, improved command of the language and feeling more at home in The Netherlands.
Our students work towards a goal to improve their language skills, with particular attention given to daily practice. As a result, a foreign language can start to feel familiar and that can have a lasting impact. Our students come from all over the world and that makes for interesting conversations and gatherings. That cultural diversity brings along with it a wise message: language enriches, connects and gives colour to life.
We offer face-to-face and online classroom courses, integration & language exam preparation, qualified and passionate trainers, tailor-made solutions and much more. LEARN MORE.
Tomorrow, we will be doing an at-home beer tasting workshop presented by Hetbiermoment. For #ThrowbackThursday, let’s take a look at our tour from 2018 to Koningshoeven monastery to visit the Trappist Brewery, famous for La Trappe beer!
22 September 2018. by Elaine Ferguson. A group of enthusiastic beer tasters assembled outside the La Trappe Monastery in Berkel Enschot. Coincidently, the majority of our group consisted of Australians although some were from Sydney.
Antonio our guide met us at the gates and we preceded to the brew room where he explained the process (see link below), but the most important part for us to remember was the 2nd fermentation!! As once the beer is bottled, it continues to ferment. So, the longer you store it, the better the taste. (more…)
28 Jan 2021. by Val Fraser. In times of lockdown and loads of negative news, getting a notification about Dutch Taxes would usually be the straw that broke the camel’s back! But this was not how I felt when I was advised that tíc was arranging a workshop on dutch taxes. In fact, the worst thing about taxes, would be paying too much or getting fined!
Tim Dircken, fellow tíc member and financial advisor from Dircken and Partners Financial Services, kindly took us through the Dutch tax regulations and obligations, answering all our intelligent (or not) questions with patience and simplicity.
This webinar was the first of a series of finance-related series focused on Dutch income tax, subsidies and specific arrangements for expats. (more…)
