WORKING AND LIVING WITH THE DUTCH

You’ve just started your new job in the Netherlands. At the first few meetings, you’ve noticed people voicing their opinions right away, some without even being asked. You think it’s rude. Your boss doesn’t blink an eye and asks you to speak up from now on.

At House of English, years of field testing have convinced us that certain patterns
of behaviour create an identifiable culture that is uniquely Dutch. Our culture course, ‘Working and Living with the Dutch’ explores these behaviours and will help you to understand your co-workers and feel more confident in your new Dutch life.

You enter the classroom to find half of the students aren’t there. The students that have shown up are yawning and haven’t done their homework. House of English will help you to turn this situation around and have your students leave the room fired up about your class.

Here’s a sample of the course content:
– Meeting your students’ needs
– Improvising naturally and with
– confidence
– Active listening
– Giving constructive feedback
– Using personal stories to enhance
the training
– Preparing for lessons, making your plan
– Dealing with difficult students
– Energizers and enlivening the room
– Developing your own personal
teaching style

TRANSLATING, TEXT EDITING AND COPYWRITING

When the American fast food chain Kentucky Fried Chicken translated their slogan ‘finger lickin’ good’ into Chinese,
it turned out to be ‘eat your fingers off’. This is a great example of getting
‘lost in translation’.

House of English will translate, edit, or
copy write your website, brochures, letters, reports, contracts, or other documents from Dutch to English or English to Dutch. House of English ensures your documents will be done by a native speaker who makes your documents sound ‘native’, without compromising your message.
