Dutch finger foods. Essential expressions. Integrating into society. Nine things non-Dutch kids love about living here in Holland. Things the Dutch invented. All that and more in this pocket-sized book that is a fun, entertaining, and informative introduction to life in the Netherlands.
With this book in your bag, you will learn about what the Dutch do, eat, think, say and expect - and the quirky customs behind them. It is not your traditional introduction into a new society: no 'Be sure to give a firm handshake and look people in the eye'. Instead, it identifies the myriad daily habits of the Dutch that you are sure to recognize even from day one, while also giving you tips on how to learn the language, which museums are the most popular, and explaining what the deal is behind the (in)famous 'coffee shops'.
There is more to this book than just informal tips on getting through life in the Netherlands. This is also the go-to book for quick information on obtaining a residence permit, requesting asylum, looking for a home, going to university, or simply expanding upon your wealth of factoids on the Netherlands.
