in my host country, the local language is a little difficult but I would like to learn. in the Netherlands, I experienced more in English communication. For Dutch, since I haven't learnt it formally, it is not improved yet.

Final comments
All in all, study in the Netherlands is easy for me to travel to other european countries and very good environment to study other european languages like French, German, Spanish etc if you have time.I advice the students try to study as many languages as they can and find part-time jobs constantly to enrich the social experiences.

I like to go to Irish pub and the American Dream in the city center sometimes with friends to celebrate some special events like birtherday etc. For cafe, we normal went to the Engels near Central Station to meet someone or just have fun there. the Blaak square is really amazing because of the achetechure style.

Personal comments
Actually, I am fatisfied with what the school did for us. it is not easy to control or to manage these people simultanouesly, but it is good for students to learn how to communicate with others and to be tolerant and independent.
