After you finish the BGB language course, your life in the Netherlands will finally start! Typically, you will arrive in the Netherlands the weekend after your final language exam. For the week that follows, you will stay in a hotel in Koog aan de Zaan, near the BGB office. Naturally, we’ll make all the arrangements for you.
The reason you’re staying close to the BGB office this week is because we have to take care of some paperwork, and having you present for the necessary appointments saves us both a lot of time. It’s also a good opportunity to personally meet more members of the BGB team!
Our office is a 5-minute walk from the famous Zaanse Schans, a historical area with lots of windmills, old houses and the very first Albert Heijn supermarket. The only way to arrive in a more typically Dutch fashion would be to wear wooden shoes!
