Settling in

Once the first matters are handled after your relocation, and the initial feeling of “culture shock” is processed, you can set your mind to settling in and start thinking of some other fun and practical things.
You might want to invest in learning the Dutch language or improve your English? it’s good for both integration and at work.
Or you want to know more about career possibilities, perhaps not yet now, but in the near future. Daily matters like how the public transportation works, where to do your groceries or how to arrange domestic services will become important now. You’ll also have time for some practical matters like arranging taxation and social security.

Don’t forget to have fun during your stay! Join the regular events of the Expat Center Twente to get to know more internationals in the area or explore the Twente region.
