STE Languages – New Fall Classes!

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.

At STE Languages you can strengthen your language skills by attending one of our many language courses. Every year we receive over 2,500 students from all over the world.

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.

A good conversation starts by being able to speak the same language…but what if you haven’t been able to master that language yet? Check out the new fall schedule for Dutch classes starting on 27 October!

What we learned about early Dutch education

Tilburg International Club Dutch Education webinarWe were happy to have Annebet from New2NL.com to give us an introduction to the Dutch school system. We had a great session with lots of great questions about Dutch education for young children.

We had a Zoom call that covered all kinds of early education topics including, educational philosophies (Waldorf/Steiner, Montessori, Dalton, etc.), preschools, how to apply to the schools, special needs education, programs for gifted children, schools for newcomers and much more. Attendees had the opportunity to learn more about how to find a suitable schools, understanding the options and the philosophy of before and after school child care.

Prior to the webinar, members were able to submit questions that Annebet answered during the call including:

  • How to keep an eye on progress of your child without knowing Dutch.
  • How we can help our child in his study/homework without knowing Dutch.
  • When to register for basisschool?

The order is a chivalric order open to “everyone who has earned special merits for society”. These are people who deserve appreciation and recognition from society for the special way in which they have carried out their activities. (more…)

14.05.2015 If you missed TIC’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 14th, you missed a great time! A great time at an AGM? Yes, you read correctly!

tíc Board of Directors hard at work!

We had a nice turnout and, after a welcome coffee with sweets, we began the evening as we do every year, with a short presentation over the club and how we are performing. All board members are still in term, so no need for a vote but our treasurer, Yiyi Bai, will be leaving us at the end of the club year and we are in search of a replacement. Next, Anne shared our membership numbers which are slightly up from last year but still considerably lower than when we had the first influx of university members. (more…)
