"I have visited Amsterdam at the beginning of May 2009. I liked The Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular very much: people, culture, architecture of the city felt spiritually close to me."

"I have visited Amsterdam at the beginning of May 2009. I liked The Netherlands and Amsterdam in particular very much : people, culture, architecture of the city felt spiritually close to me.

After returning to Moscow, I decided to go back to Holland in the nearest future in order to learn its language. I began to look through the different internet sites dedicated to education in The Netherlands.

I found a few options, but the most detailed site was eurogates.nl. There are a lot of variants for study to be chosen. It is possible to study in different Universities not only in Amsterdam, but in other cities as well.

It could be courses of in-plant training or additional higher education or study of foreign languages. Duration depends on your wishes and the teaching term is not so limited - can be from a few weeks to a year.

I wanted to begin to study Dutch language, therefore I have chosen a language school in the center of Amsterdam named Easy Dutch Plus. Its course consists of different modules. Duration of a module depends on the intensity of lessons - from one to three times per week for three hours each.

I have chosen the first three modules since the private visa I could get is only for 90 days. If you want to study longer than 90 days you may need a letter from the university that they invite you to follow studies for a year and a confirmation of payment for it.

In my case I also requested a confirmation letter with original signature and a stamp regarding my arrival to The Netherlands with precise dates in it, and the accommodation letter about my residence during my stay.

On all questions I communicated directly with the administrator of the language school  - Monica, and with firma "Eurogates". They helped me very much with advice on all questions about visa and other issues.

Now I live in a host family that lends me a room in their apartment. It is also possible to use the kitchen and the bathroom there. I study on Tuesdays and Thursdays at school. There are five people from different countries there : Australia, Argentina, Mexico and Poland. I really do approciate to study in this country and I am sure that it will be a good experience for me."
