I'm very exited to show you my new logo! The team of Learn Dutch Fast: Mister (dog) and me... What do you think?
This has been a very busy week for me (I have been teaching a Total Immersion 1 course), and I couldn't find the time for a "real" newsletter. However, there were some events that I wanted to share with you that couldn't wait any longer, because their dates are getting closer.
First of all: let me ask you a question. Do you have a Dutch partner/friend/boss etc. who is very proud of you and would like you to win a free Dutch immersion course? Ask him/her to write something about you on https://www.facebook.com/LearnDutchFast and on June 1st I'll choose a winner ;-) All the other nominees will receive a 15% discount on an immersion course of their choice...
Another date that is coming closer fast is Tuesday, May 27th: our Dutch Adventure trip to Zaanse Schans! (Whole day) Anh, our tour guide, will show us around, while we speak Dutch all the time (I'll be there too, as a teacher AND tourist ;-). Learn how cheese and clogs are made, visit a windmill, have a yummie pancake for lunch and enjoy the beautiful area. €99,95 p.p. all in. If you would like to join us, send me a mail before Monday, 2 p.m. (email@example.com).
Here are the rest of the events that I wanted to share with you. (Next week I'll write a "real newsletter" with the next episode of "Hammer the Grammar" and much more. Promised!):
