INVITATION TO FREE DUTCH WORKSHOP “QUICK INBURGEREN” MARCH 10TH | TAALTAAL (10 March)

As a member of the international community, you might be interested in the free workshop that TaalTaal is organizing.
The topic is Quick Inburgeren — it’s for people who want to pass the exams quickly and effectively. Often, other routes may be available like Staatsexamen that aren’t immediately obvious but may save a lot of time

On Friday evening, March 9, 2018, the first edition of the City Pier Night Walk will take place. The route of about 10 kilometres leads participants from the Malieveld to Scheveningen. The special walk passes through the illuminated streets of the city of The Hague, where music and entertainment uplift the atmosphere at various points.


‘Welcome to The Hague’ information mornings are hosted by the City of The Hague and ACCESS to welcome new international arrivals to The Hague, Delft, Leidschendam-Voorburg and Rijswijk.

Family members are welcome and encouraged to attend. This morning programme includes an overview of useful resources for finding information, a chance to have questions answered by ACCESS volunteers, an opportunity to meet fellow internationals, a visit to The Hague Public Library as well as a short informative guided visit to the historic centre near City Hall.
