Hallo allemaal!I am looking for a Dutch tutor here in Portland. I've been learning Dutch on some apps and using books for almost a year, so I have the basics, but I've found myself needing a bit more guidance with some of the grammar and creating my own sentences. I pick up language notes pretty quickly, but like I said, I really just need a bit more structure than what I have been getting. Does anyone here have experience teaching Dutch and would be willing to meet with me once or twice a…Continue
Wij zijn op zoek naar een Nederlands-sprekende persoon die graag met kinderen werkt of oppaservaring heeft. Mijn man en ik werken de meeste weken van de zomervakantie (ik werk vanuit huis). Ik zou het liefst iemand vinden die of een paar weken op de kinderen kan passen of een paar dagen in de week langs kan komen. We hebben een meisje van 11 en jongen van 8 en we wonen in Beaverton. Ze houden erg van lezen, tekenen, en van de natuur. Nadat we 3.5 jaar in Nederland hebben gewoond, is het nu…Continue

Good evening!Sorry for my English, that is the whole reason for my post. I am not finding any information anywhere for adult classes to learn Dutch in the Portland Metro area.

I would really love to meet with someone before then over coffee to learn about either of…Continue

For those who aren't aware of this yet, but there is the 'Fabric Depot' on SE 122nd and Stark in Portland where one can find some Dutch and Indonesian things. For instance: speculaas koekjes, dropjes, stroopwafels, sambals, kecaps and more. And around Christmas time there are plenty of TaaiTaai poppen among other things. They used to sell amandelbrood too but I haven't seen those in awhile. Jammer. I love them! So much for this tidbit.
Hello Dutch Friends!
My family recently moved back to Portland from Holland after 6 years there. Our 2 boys were born in the Netherlands and our oldest, Coen (3 1/2) spoke dutch in school.
Unfortunately, my wife and my dutch isn't nearly as good, so we would love to keep up his conversational Dutch hear in Portland.
Therefore, does anyone know any kids or adults who are able to offer dutch language babysitting? Maybe 1-2 evenings a month. We live in NW…Continue
