Learning dutch through play

If children learn Dutch it is important to practice in their free time. There are plenty of opportunities for this not only during the school holidays but also during the school year. Children can play games, make things, sing, listen to stories,…and learn new words while having fun.

 

 

Pictogram booklets

Our four pictogram booklets contain a theme-specific series of images. Next to each image or pictogram is the right word in Dutch.

 

 

Dictionary for newcomers

Vzw ‘de Rand’ is publishing a bilingual dictionary for non-native speaking newcomers, called Jouw vragen ondertiteld ("Your questions with subtitles").
