HELP! Need a dutch tutor/conversation partner

Postby ChixBiskit » Tue, 06 May 2008 6:09 pm

Hello!

Am trying to develop basic dutch language skills so that I don't go crazy when I visit the in-laws (they don't speak English), and turn into a fly on the wall.

Would be great to meet someone with an interest in sharing the language and some patience, preferably in the River Valley/Orchard area. I travel quite a bit for work, so a continuous flexible arrangement is key. Compensation.

Thanks!
Cheers ChixBiskit

Hoi Jassie en Margriet,
hoewel ik geen NLer ben maar ik zou heel graag Nederlanders die in Singapore wonen leren kennen!

Although I am not Dutch but I have lived in NL for many years. I speak Dutch and would love to help anyone who wants to learn Dutch. I feel very Dutch and still keep very close in contact with a circle of Dutch friends back in NL now that I move back to Singapore (a few months ago). Yes, I do miss NL...
I want to meet local Dutch people and meet people who are interested in Netherlands!
Feel free to email me at kisaragi.ayame@gmail.com

I'm Dutch girl/lady and would love to meet local as well Dutch girls/ladies to talk in Dutch/English.
Did you all meet up yet?
What are your ages and living situations?
Let me start:
I'm Dutch, 35 years old, no children (yet) and married. My husband is Dutch as well. I work part-time as a teacher.
So, who are you???
And when to meet? (preferably during daytime...)
hope to hear from you all.
