Every Sunday at 7 pm, you'll be able to join us for either a public film screening or a lecture. Seats are limited and we work on a first-come, first-serve basis. Our doors open at 6:30 and close at 7:15 or earlier in case the lecture room has reached its full capacity (out of safety considerations).

From Sunday 8 till Tuesday 17 January 2023, NVIC organizes a new edition of the TAFL course. This intensive, interactive course is developed for (future) teachers of Arabic.

Dear friends of the NVIC,
Yesterday morning, the terrible news reached us that professor Fred Leemhuis, former director of the NVIC, passed away after a short illness in Groningen. He was a great and beloved friend of our institute. We wish his wife Vreni, his sons Rob and Benni and their wives, his grandchildren and his many friends all the strength to cope with this terrible loss. We will not forget Fred. May he rest in eternal peace.

NVIC is pleased to welcome Christine Kamel as our new receptionist. Christine will briefly introduce herself:
"My name is Christine Kamel. I live in Cairo, Egypt. I studied Pharmacy at an Egyptian University (Ain Shams), class 2010. I worked as a Research & Development Pharmacist in a Pharmaceutical company for 9 years. Ever since I was a child, I wanted to be multilingual and be able to speak many languages. So, besides studying Pharmacy, I used to study foreign languages. I speak English, French, Greek in addition to my mother tongue “Arabic”. Currently, I am studying Dutch as well.
When I saw the announcement made by NVIC for the vacancy of a “Receptionist/Secretary”, I really wanted to join, so I applied and I was honored to have been selected. People here are very friendly and I love everything about this place.
My hobbies include reading, listening to music, watching movies, travelling and caring for pets. I’ve been to many countries across Europe and the Netherlands is always my favorite destination. I have 2 dogs & 5 cats, all of which are rescued from the streets. One of my dreams is to witness an end to animal cruelty all over the world.
In the end I would like to say: Ik hou van Nederland."
Important note: upon careful consideration, we have decided to resume our Dutch language courses.
