My local friend

Have you finished your Dutch course but have no idea how to maintain or develop your skills? Then you need a local friend.

My Local Friend is a small volunteer organization in Groningen which we run from City Central. We match up Dutch residents who are willing to offer their time with international residents who are looking to improve their Dutch, so that you can have one-to-one conversations and joint activities in Dutch. In this way we bring ‘old’ and ‘new’ Groningers into contact with each other and help new residents learn the langauge and get to know the city better.

If you would like to join either as an international resident or as a Dutch resident, please sign up for an intake through the website for My Local Friend.
