Participants reactions

''I find it useful to do grammatic exercises together instead of the teacher only explaining them with a slide and putting us into breakout rooms on our own.''

''Funny and good way of learning some Dutch. Doesn't take that many hours of the week. And it suits all levels.''

''The atmosphere was great, I felt that everyone was very friendly and I learned a lot.''
