    Bob provided language training in Dutch for my wife and me as well as number of colleagues in Makro C&C Netherlands. He gave very good understanding of the Dutch grammar, words and structure. Moreover Bob can provide good insights on the Dutch culture and environment. Thus the language class became more then a mere grammar and words exercise. I was happy to work with him and my Dutch language skills improved a lot.
