For a number of years now, Iber Lengua has provided language training and naturalization courses for a diversity of reintegration agencies and local counsels. Iber Lengua also provides business language courses in a multitude of languages.
Based on the experiences from the many courses provided throughout the years and in light of the new Naturalization legislation, Iber Lengua developed a series of Taylor-made courses that prepare participants on their naturalization exams. These comprehensive courses, consisting out of language/cultural training combined with a trainee period, prepare both the more experienced as well as the novice, on their final exams. There is a diversity of specialized courses for the diverse groups and domains.
Based upon prior experience with group courses, Iber Lengua developed specialized packages, aimed at the objectives within the three applied domains
Iber Lengua made a division in these packages, namely: Work and RHE.
The domain ‘citizenship’ is represented in both packages.
Dutch in practice (non-profit)
Within the framework of citizenship- and reintegration courses Iber Lengua successfully introduced the non-profit section ‘Dutch in Practice’ in 2004.
The objective of ‘Dutch in Practice’ is the integration of participants within Dutch cultural society.
During the integration and coaching of these participants, Iber Lengua emphasizes on the resemblances between cultures and not the dissimilarities, thus eliminating bias and misconceptions in an early stage.
The final objective, finding employment and ones own place within Dutch society, is encourage via (among other) the integration of participants within everyday normal life. This is done though activities as; making an hospital appointed, going to the market for groceries, ordering a book from the library, going to a doctor’s appointment, visiting schools for information, asking directions to the nearest supermarket, visiting a health care centre, or going for a swim or a stroll on the beach.
If you are interested in assisting with the integration of people of non-occidental decent, than please contact: Manine Koetsier (email@example.com). Volunteers are also invited to submit ideas for the development of lesson material and/or activities that will enhance the practical use of the Dutch language and the integration within Dutch society.
