The student association Nji-Sri has started a Dutch course for international students from the university for professional education Van Hall Larenstein. Fourteen participants have already joined the language lessons. Many first-year international students want to learn Dutch, but the course at Van Hall Larenstein is offered only in the second year.
The course, consisting of ten lessons, is given by an official teacher from TaalVast. Timmerman: ‘If reactions are positive, we will certainly consider continuing the course. As a student association we think it’s important to offer our members something besides studying and drinking a beer in the pub.’
