Dutch Movie Night


Monday the 29th of September


Free (with ESN card)

Every month, we will show a Dutch movie for you guys at Crea. And the best part is; all of the movies are subtitled in English! This month, we chose to show ‘’De Heineken Ontvoering’’ which means ‘’The Heineken Kidnapping’’. This exciting movie tells the story of the amateuristic kidnapping of Freddy Heineken, the owner of the well-known beer magnate. The movie is based on a real crime, which took place way back in 1983, and of which the aftermath is still not completely over. Watch the trailer here. Intrigued? Our Dutch Movie Night is free to all ESN card holders!

ISN Board Member in the SPOTLIGHT

Joshua de Groot
Dear all! As some of you already know, my name is Joshua de Groot and I'm the Introduction Coordinator of ISN Amsterdam. This means that it is my job to plan, organize and implement two amazing introduction weeks for the upcoming winter and summer internationals. If you've participated in the introduction week yourself, you will know how big of a task this is!

The best thing about working for ISN: First of all, I would say meeting all kinds of new people! Secondly, working for ISN gives me the opportunity to give something back to the internationals. One year ago I did my exchange in Barcelona and had an amazing ESN time. With this in mind I will try to make the best out of everyone's exchange.

Favorite place in Amsterdam: It's hard to say that I only have 1 favorite place. My favorite places are the Vondelpark for relaxing with friends and the Begijnhof for its history and silent atmosphere.
Favorite travel destination:
Chili! As you may tell I'm not completely Dutch. My mother is from Antofagasta, which is located in the north of Chili. An amazing city with great many beaches at its coast.
Wishes to study abroad: I
f I could choice I would definitely consider Barcelona again. But right now I would say Santiago de Chili so I can improve my Spanish and travel around in South-America.

So would you like to experience a weekend filled with beer, traditional clothing and lots of fun as well? Drop by at our office and get tickets fast!


Student of the Week:
Jara Ruth Strebel

Our latest Student of the Week hails from Switzerland, famous for its high mountains and high cost of living. During the introduction week she rapidly became known by the title Princess Jara. She classily combines a sharp sense of humor with a weakness for chocolate. Jara also joined the Discover Holland Weekend, where she was intrigued by the green blue North Sea and jumped in fully dressed. After the swim she stated "this is one of the things I will definitely remember from my exchange period". May you have many equally memorable moments during your stay with us, Jara!
