144: Bart De Pau On the Shocking Dutch

Bart De Pau About This Week's Guest Bart De Pau Bart De Pau was born to a Dutch father and a Belgian mother and grew up in Zeeland (the province that is famous for its massive sea defenses). He set up a Summer/Winter School: intensive Dutch courses with accommodation. Some years ago, He started to video interviews with the students of the Summer/Winter School in front of a blue background. When foreigners share their experiences, other foreigners can benefit from them. That was the idea... but it appeared that Dutch people liked to watch foreigners talking about their language and culture even more. Result: 4-5 million views per month on YouTube and Facebook combined. "The biggest shock to non-Dutch is the Dutch directness" Listen to what others say. Don't just be able to hear what they say, but actually listen. Explore the differences between you as an expat and your Dutch host; what's the perspective of both parties?
