Every summer, children of many different nationalities take part in the Roeland Vzw language course “Taalzomer Nederlands voor anderstalige nieuwkomers”. This is a summer language programme for newcomers aged 7-12 years.
The programme not only gives them the opportunity to get acquainted with the Dutch language, but they can also enjoy the leisure activities that the city of Ghent has to offer. With their playful approach the Roeland Vzw volunteers help the children to feel at home in their new country. This facilitates their integration and makes things easier for their parents and (future) teachers as well.
