Additional courses / Events
(English and Italian)
We organize learning courses based on various novels from different genres (mistery, fiction, detective stories…). You can practise your reading comprehension and conversational skills, learning new expressions, and having a good time while drinking a cup of tea. The purspose of the course is to help you to ”get rid of the language barrier”, improve and develop speaking skills and of course to meet new people from culturally diverse backgrounds and countries. It is a great opportunity for someone who is new in Haarlem and would like to increase confidence while speaking.
The new course starts in February and takes place in a small and quiet cafe / home (depends on the number of participants).
The number of the participants is limited (max 7).

- Success and failure
- Innovation and technology
- Creative thinking
- … and much more!!
