This is your chance to experience the real Dutch Family life during your exchange! As an international student you are probably living in an international student house and surrounded by many internationals. This can make it hard to get in contact with Dutch local people. That’s why ESN came up with Host Family Programme.

Most of you have been in the Netherlands for a while and already know a lot about this slightly crazy country and about the student culture. But what do you know about the Dutch family culture? The Host Family Project is the perfect way to find out what the Dutch family life is like while staying with a Dutch family for a weekend!
