Amstel Expats’ founder, Monique den Haan has hands-on experience with settling in under expat circumstances. She worked as a consultant and project manager on international assignments in the USA, Canada and Europe.

After living abroad for over 5 years, Monique moved back to her home country as the partner of an expat. She has been assisting internationals, moving to / living in the Amsterdam region professionally as a business owner since 2010.

Monique understands the impact of an international move on all family members involved: working expat, expat partner and children. Her extensive knowledge of local services and practices within the Amsterdam region helps you to settle-in smoothly.

In order to make it easier for internationals to feel at home & understand the locals, she also developed the Boost Your Dutch Training ProgrammeThis new innovative method takes advantage of the extensive skill set & life experiences of internationals in order to accelerate their learning process and to provide a no-stress, friendly atmosphere for learning Dutch as a second language.

“I have helped many international families settling in and getting their lives up and running after their move”

 “Being a parent of school-going children myself, I understand family requirements and have extensive knowledge of local procedures and services”

“In my experience, one of the most important aspects of making yourself feel at home is learning to speak (some) Dutch to ease local communications”

“As daunting as it may seem, learning Dutch can be fun and using Dutch in practice is likely to enrich your local life”

        “My aim is to ensure that my clients feel secure and have the best possible chances for a successful and enjoyable time in the Netherlands”
