5 Steps to ENJOY your international life(6)

With my E.N.J.O.Y. programme I help you to function in the new place as soon as possible, to understand how things work in the Netherlands and where and how to find what you need, what to do if…, and much more! Instead of finding it all out by yourself you can get a full package of information and my personal support.

You can choose between a

3hr workshop (25.8.2016) or a

5 weeks programme (starting the 29.8.2016)

List of Workshops

Barbara G. says

Ute’s workshops are very professional and fast paced. She has a very indepth knowledge of the topics and shares the latest scientific findings. I’ve been at her workshops “Moving on, relocating and staying behind” and “Parenting the bilingual child”. I can warmly recommend both of them! 

Marco P. says

German is so difficult! I need it for my work but in big groups I didn’t feel that I made any progress. When I heard that Ute gives one-on-one lessons, I thought I give it a try. I need to pass an exam soon. She has different ways to teach which makes learning interesting even after a long workday. The grammar seems less complicated now, which means a lot!

(Marco passed his C1 exam in October 2015)

José D. L. says

We speak 2 languages in our family and didn’t know which school to choose for our children. Ute helped us consider all the options and make our very own family language plan. We now know how to help our children with all the languages and on how to respond when teachers, family etc. doubt our multilingual plan. –  Thank you Ute!

Why Lounge…

A Lounge a comfortable place where people can sit, relax and meet people.

In an airport people can make themselves comfortable in the lounge area while waiting to continue their journey.

Usually this area is offered to special customers or those who pay an extra fee.

– I think we all deserve such an area and therefore I chose this name for my place to meet you.
