A winning start in integration
Volunteers can help you learn Dutch in an inspiring way:
Walking encyclopaedia: are you a fan of the outdoors and do you know your town or city well? Then you will probably enjoy helping our students find their way around!
EHBH (homework made easy): you can make an enormous contribution by helping our students with their homework.
Excursions: do you have a car and would you like to organise a trip to some interesting spot in the Netherlands?
Prêt-à-porter: What will I wear today? What is ‘shirt’ in Dutch? Help others to broaden their vocabulary!
Bookworms: books, newspapers, magazines – ideal for practising both reading and writing! Photos are an ideal starting point for learning new words in Dutch.
Film buffs: Watch YouTube clips or TV programmes together and find out what students understand and what not? Always an excellent and practical way of learning a new language.
Conversational help: Would you like to bring out the actor or actress in yourself? It can be great fun acting out real-life situations and learning new words. These words will more than likely show up in the exams and so you can help improve a candidate’s chances of success.
Café NL: Volunteers meet every Tuesday, between 5 and 7pm and every Saturday, between 2 and 4pm , in the Leeszaal in Rotterdam West to help others practice their Dutch. This can be a great opportunity to meet new people and help them learn the language.
Address: Rijnhoutplein 3, 3014 TZ Rotterdam

NELI is working with volunteers that are willing to educate the daily Dutch language, so that new comers can improve their Dutch in a suitable social environment. Participating in society is synonymous to integrating. The focus relies on studying, working, blending into society and raising your children.
