September 24, our 1st monthly meeting of this ‘year’

Cultural differences

International Cafe @ Facebook

Dear International students,

We hope you had a great summer! We look forward to the start of a new season, welcoming back old friends who have joined us in the past, but also meeting new friends as they join our meetings of International Café. We met a lot of nice people at the University Fair and hope that lots of you will come.

International Café was started in 2008 to make students from abroad feel at home during their time in Groningen. It is a place to relax, meet friends from other cultures, and talk with friendly ‘natives’ about things you may not understand in the Netherlands.

Our first meeting

This season’s first regular monthly meeting of International Café will be held on Saturday, September 24 at Het Pand, from 18:00 until 22:00 o’clock. There will be soup and bread, coffee and tea and homemade cake.
This month there will be a short talk about cultural differences between Holland and the rest of the world! We will be happy to talk with you about any questions you may have about aspects of Dutch culture which you find challenging or puzzling. As usual there is plenty of time for games and conversation.
