Is My Local Friend for you?

My Local Friend is a new volunteer organization in Groningen. We match international residents who are looking to integrate with Groningers, one-to-one, to provide language support for new residents, and to bring old and new Groningers into contact with each other.

Once registered with My Local Friend, we will find a local with whom you can meet for conversations or outings, to improve you Dutch and get to know the city better. To register, we do expect you to be able to carry a simple conversation in Dutch. For this reason, we usually require that you speak approximately level A2 Dutch.
