Some of you may opt for a Dutch language course, once you are here in Delft. It is possible to learn some Dutch already with the “Hoi Holland!” App:

This serious game is your first step towards mastering the Dutch language. Hoi Holland! shows you how much fun it can be to learn Dutch!

Although you can speak English with practically anyone in Holland, learning the local language helps you to get to know the country and its culture and society.

By playing Hoi Holland! you will learn some basics of Dutch: understanding and speaking Dutch makes everyday activities, such as grocery shopping or going to a restaurant, a little easier and more fun. It will also help you to connect with Dutch students and make new, Dutch friends!

Typically Dutch: Bicycles

The Bicycle is the popular way of transportation for all Dutch people; almost everyone has a bike and knows how to ride from their earliest years. Among students in Delft it is also a handy way of transportation, because the campus is no longer accessible for cars and the inner city is an enormous disaster for any vehicle except bicycles and people on foot.

Typically Dutch: Vla

Vla is the Dutch custard. It is the most popular dessert in Holland, so for the Dutch it’s always surprising to notice that foreign supermarkets don’t sell it. Vla is a sort of yoghurt with the taste of chocolate, caramel, vanilla or banana, or something else. You can buy it everywhere, even in the smallest supermarket, in cartons.
