Dutch School and Life


I spoke to several students for this journal entry, so the answer to each question comes from a different student. Hopefully, you all can learn about some differences between being a kid in The Netherlands and in the U.S!

What do you eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner?:

I asked two different students this question. The first student said that they eat fruit and bread for breakfast, a cheese sandwich and crackers for lunch, and a meal with potatoes and meat for dinner. The second student said that they had yogurt for breakfast, crackers with hummus and fruit for lunch, and also potatoes and meat for dinner.

What is your house like?:

My house is two stories tall with two bedrooms and one bathroom. I do not have a brother or sister so I don't have to share my bedroom with anyone. My house is touching my neighbor's house on both the left and the right, but I have a nice garden out front. 

What chores do you have at home?:

I have to walk my dog and clean up after dinner every day. I also have to help my mom hang up our clothes to dry whenever she does laundry on the weekends.

What jobs do your parents have?:

My mom is a school teacher and my dad works in construction building houses.
