New chance: register your care staff for free Dutch language courses

Do you work in a nursing home in Brussels? Do you want to improve your Dutch?

In the autumn of 2021 the courses offered free of charge by Iriscare and Huis van het Nederlands to the staff of Brussels care homes were a great success. We are therefore offering a new series of Dutch language courses. They will start in April 2022. Register now and until 18 February 2022!

This new series of courses will again focus on "everyday communication" in the nursing home. Besides theoretical lessons, each participant will be offered practical exercises to stimulate interaction between the nursing staff and the residents. The practical application of Dutch in the workplace was particularly well received during the first series of courses: "Before, the weekly menu was in French, now the menus are bilingual. These are small things that make a big difference for the residents," says one of the participants. The residents of the Brussels nursing homes where the staff took the course also say how nice it is to be able to speak Dutch with the nursing staff.

Want to know more? You can find all practical information on the website of the House of Dutch.

Registration for the Dutch language course (free)

This Dutch language course is specifically aimed at French-speaking employees and managers of nursing homes in the Brussels-Capital Region.

You can register until 18 February 2022.
