How did you learn Dutch (or are you a native speaker)?

I lived in the Netherlands for 16 years, studied at Hogeschool van Amsterdam and University of Leiden, became a teacher (1e graad bevoegdheid) and taught English and Math (VMBO-T, HAVO and VWO).

What types of activities would you like to see?

Opportunities to speak Dutch, cycling, cooking (I love making bitterballen), singles events, events for families too. My 13 year old son has soccer which conflicts with a lot of Saturday events, though (Premier league)


Ik woon sinds okt 2008 in Redmond, al 16 jaar in nederland gewoond, (ex-man is nederlands, gescheiden) heb 2 kinderen. Ik mis nederland maar mijn ex niet (en heb spijt van het naar de VS terug te keren). Heb amerikanse en nederlandse nationaliteit

What Tricia "Red" D. is saying about this Meetup Group

Where was everyone? My son and I were there at 5 30 pm, waited and yet didn't see anyone. We were really looking forward to meeting other Dutch speakers (ipv mensen de waren geeirriteerd toen wij nederlands met elkaar gingen spreken! Mijn nederlands is niet perfekt maar mijn zoon spreekt nederlands als moedertaal en hij wilde eindelijk met iemand zonder mijn zware Amerikanse accent te ontmoeten. Nou ja, hoop ik volgende keer jullie te ontmoeten)
