Language training

Learning the Dutch language ensures faster integration. Register your employee for our next course.  Being taught in small groups (max. 10 pers.), specially meant for higher educated migrants, there is room for personal attention and tailor-made assignments.


The Expat Center organises about 20 events annually. Such as information evenings regarding the Dutch tax system, health care and CV training for family members. Also a visit to Giethoorn or our monthly Meet & Greet.


In the area of sport, culture and going out there is lots to do in the East of the Netherlands/Twente. Moreover, the Netherlands is relatively small, so even outside our region, everything is within reach.


The Toolbox for HR-Consultants is in Dutch and English. You will find detailed pages in the fully English section.
