Hi Henry, hi group,
Please look at this:
Does anyone of you know where to find something like this in Holland to learn Dutch?

or something else if others don't speak it. So that's not going to be

The price of either course is €270,-

Yes, Gronau is close to Enschede, and can be easily reached by bus,
train, car, and even per bicycle (hey, if you're going Dutch...). The
