Playing golf and learning Dutch

Are you learning Dutch and looking for a native Dutch speaker to get some practice? Here, you can write something about yourself, your level of Dutch, your objectives, and your preferred means of communication (email, Skype, MSN, live, etc.).

Playing golf and learning Dutch

Post by timvl » Thu Jan 10, 2013 9:03 pm

Anyone out there that could help me combine learning/practicing Dutch and doing some golf in the Netherlands? I play better golf than I speak Dutch (and my golf is not that good ) but I am trying to learn some Dutch by doing a course and practicing through the internet. I would like to come to the Netherlands during the summer or autumn 2013.

Sigh, no responses, so many people who have read my first request but no one that seems to be able to make the connection between Learning Dutch and playing golf in the Netherlands. Oh well, hope you all have a good summer :-)

Not everybody plays golf in a rather densely populated country where every square inch of land needs to be used three times over.

Personally I think that sport should be banned altogether.

Kon je die sport je veroorloven, dan zou je daar een andere mening over hebben. :mrgreen:
