Discovering and photographing the unknown beauty of Europe
As some of you know, I work as a teacher in a training center for unemployed people. I teach technical Dutch and English to future PC technicians, administrative assistants and accounting assistants.
I have to admit that I love teaching as much as I love traveling, photography and writing. Yes, that much. I like the social contacts, I like to talk and I also think that the transfer of knowledge is one of the most beautiful things you can do for a living. And since our students come from all over the world, it is also an enriching experience.
For me, it is very important to have a good connection with my students. Each training lasts 15 months and during that time you get to know each other better and you develop a certain connection with your students. For me, patience, respect and humor are the keywords when dealing with our students, who are between 18 – 50 years old.
BIP stands for Brussels Information Point and is one of our favorite excursions. It’s an interactive exhibition where you get to know Brussels and its region on every possible level: economical, political, cultural, social, financial and so on. You’ll find more information here.
I did this excursion with my group of students to whom I teach technical Dutch. They are 12 men and one woman. My students gave me permission (!) to publish some of the pictures on this blog. So, here we go!
