My child goes to a Dutch-speaking school (kindergarten - elementary school), but I speak little or no Dutch. How can I support children’s Dutch skills in their free time?

Throughout Brussels, there are plenty of sport and play activities in Dutch in which your children can take part. These activities can be a great way for children to practice their Dutch while having fun at the same time. A few tips:

  • There are lots of Dutch language CDs, DVDs and books to be found.
  • Your children can get assistance in Dutch at many libraries and community centres.
  • There are plenty of Dutch-spoken films available. Have your child talk about them in your own language. At school, they can talk about them in Dutch.
  • Go to: (site in Dutch). There you will find loads of info about activities where Dutch is spoken: youth groups, holiday camps, sporting activities, theater plays and much, much more.
