This program gives you the opportunity to experience the Dutch way of life. You will do lots of bicycling, eating stroopwafels and cheese, see tulips and windmills and in the winter you will most likely go ice skating. At school you will attend classes with Dutch students and in the afternoon/evening you can join a sport club and meet even more Dutch friends. You will become a member of a Dutch family; share meals with them, watch television together, do family activities in the weekends and holidays.
