ABOUT EXPAT IN HOLLAND!
EXPAT IN HOLLAND was founded by Alexandra Grol, and was born from two passions: languages and the desire to pass on languages. Because, whether you have a flair for languages or not: "ANYBODY CAN LEARN A LANGUAGE!". Such is my thorough conviction, my experience and my motto!
Born in Beirut (Lebanon) and brought up in Belgium, I was bilingually raised by my parents (Dutch-German). Over the past years I have lived in: Belgium, France, the UK, Brazil & the Netherlands. Parallel to learning a country's language, I have always tried to get acquainted with its culture, since language and culture go hand in hand.
Earning my Master's degree for translator - interpretor Dutch, English and Portuguese at the Rijksuniversitair Centrum Antwerpen (HIVT-RUCA) I now speak five languages: Dutch, English, German, French and Portuguese.
I have more than 25 years of management and consultancy experience within international companies and organisations abroad. In 2013 I combined my business experience and language knowledge, and started supplying language and culture training sessions to private individuals and to professionals at international and regional companies and local governments.
