The 3-Day School was held in the framework of the cooperation of the Benelux Center with the University of Groningen. It was the first Winter School of this kind. It was held online.
The three days were mainly focused on speaking practice. The speakers of the School were Dr. Nikolaas Kraft van Ermel, Dr. Marcel Stuten and Dr. Hans van Koningsbrugge, teachers and professors of the University of Groningen.
A few words about the program of the School:
● On the first day, the participants worked on improving their listening skills, discussed the political situation in the Netherlands, watched and discussed the news.
● On the second day the participants talked with Dutch students, sharing their impressions of the past lockdown year.
● The final day was devoted to a lecture by Professor Hans van Koningsbrugge on the situation with the coronavirus in the Netherlands, as well as a wonderful conversation game.
On behalf of the Benelux Center, we would like to express our deep gratitude to all the participants of the School and the wonderful teachers from the University of Groningen. It was an invaluable experience!
The Benelux Center is already starting preparations for the ZOMERSCHOOL in July.
We will be very glad to see you again!
