Learning Dutch through play (4 – 9 years) - Practising Dutch

A reader from the De Horizon non-profit-making organisation uses a kamishibai (Japanese story-book theatre) to tell a story in simple Dutch. Listening to a story is great and it allows you to fantasise and dream about the story and the characters.

The story is followed by an opportunity for the children and their parents to play simple entertaining games in Dutch. Even if you still do not understand or speak Dutch very well, you are still welcome to join us.

Today we have a special guest. Lennaert Maes tells stories about Santa Claus and joins us in singing the most enjoyable songs about this legendary figure. The singing is followed by playing games with mum, dad, grandmother or grandfather while practising our Dutch language skills.

Children must be accompanied by an adult.
