hi Sophia and Deanna - my son is almost 4 and we just moved back to Portland after 6 yeas, so would love to find a dutch group or dutch babysitters as well to keep his language skills up.
Have either of you had any progress or ideas for this?
Hi Sophia, Deanna and Karl,
My name is Nuno Clauzing. I'm a 22 year old student at PSU. I moved to Portland last year in September from the Hague. I speak Dutch fluently and would love to tutor/babysit since I want to become a teacher. I have over 6 years experience in babysitting and have been an teaching assistant at college the Netherlands.
I would love to answer anymore questions you might have. Please feel free to reach me at (503) 701 4855, text or call :)
We also have three children (11, 9 and 6) who are in the same situation. (We spent 4 years in Amsterdam and moved back to PDX this summer.)
@Nuno- would you be interested in working with a group of children? Potentially split into two different groups? Older group and younger group? We'd be willing to host at our house if we could pull this all together.
Hi all, I'm Barbara (Babs). I lost my parents several years back and relish any opportunity to speak Dutch. Am 58 but very young at heart and active. Would love to spend time with any kids that want to converse. My great nephews weren't interested in learning but maybe if I started activities with interested kids, they might take an interest too. We plan on attending Konigsdag. Still can't get used to that. Bea is my queen. I lived for several years in Amsterdam Noord and Scheveningen in the late 80's. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org. Ik ben Indisch.
