Hi everybody, my name is Maria. I came to live in Amsterdam 4 months ago. I am an English Teacher(primary and secondary school). I also have experience in Tourism, Sales, Administration. Since I came here it had been very hard to get a job in Amsterdam without fluent Dutch. I thought that in a city like Amsterdam, having fluent English was enough but I was wrong. It's a pity that nobody give me a chance to show that I am honest, hardworking. I am always looking to learn ,to grow with my co-workers because I am very sociable, always very energetic and predisposed to experiment new things.I attended to an Intensive Dutch Course which gave a general idea how the language works, but it was not enough to help me to speak. At the moment I am studying on my own at home. Does anybody have any suggestion about job or language course? I will appreciate any any help. Thank you!
