Dutch exchange 2012

A picture of everyone with their exchanges

On the 20th of march to the 23rd Dutch 21 students  from the Waterings Veld college in The Hague, or in the Dutch Den Haag,   visited Harrogate Grammar.  The Hague, the third largest city in the Netherlands,  is located in the province of South Holland similar to our counties such as Yorkshire.  My exchange partner was called Ré-angelo Jarvis he was born in Aruba in the Caribbean and is 15 years old. They travelled by overnight ferry and  then came by coach to Harrogate.  On their first day  I was pretty nervous about meeting Ré-angelo but we quickly started to become friends.  I was surprised to find out he could speak English, Dutch and German and even despite knowing so many languages he had started to learn Spanish. On the first night a lot of us went to Pizza Express and  I took the opportunity to show him some of Harrogate’s famous sights. I would definitely recommend hosting an exchange student  because it is very interesting learning about their country, school and is a good way to make a new friend or pen pal.


If you hosted a Dutch student and have any stories or photos you want to share please contact me.
