  1. Knowing Practicalities: After the course, you will know all you need to know about daily life practicalities, such as transportation, healthcare, housing, grocery shopping and finances. You will not feel dependent and insecure, but instead, you will feel a capable citizen who can handle independently all practicalities you will come across in The Netherlands. 
  2. Understanding Culture: After the course, you will understand the foundation of Dutch culture and customs. You will understand the characteristics of the Dutch which will help you to effectively communicate. You will be aware of social etiquette and understand what the unwritten rules are of social life. You will not feel like a tourist who is wandering around while being surprised about what you encounter. Instead, you will be a respectful newcomer, able to behave appropriately so people respect you. 
  3. Dealing with Business Mindset: After the course you will be able to deal with the Dutch Business mindset. You will understand the values in Dutch working life and will be aware of the do's and don'ts. You will know about the Dutch negotiation style and you will be mindful of the expectations during meetings and network events. You will not feel like an ignorant outsider, but instead, you will be a colleague who feels connected in the workplace. Also, you will know how to effectively deal with Dutch companies as a customer or client. 
  4. Coping with your transition: After the course you will be able to cope with your transition. You will know how to handle the emotions that you or you family members go through during the first month of your move to The Netherlands. You will be able to recognise cultural differences and will know how to deal with them. This way you will not feel like sitting on a rollercoaster like many expats experience. Instead you will be able to maintain in control and feel relaxed behind the wheel of your new life.
