Today Tupkertaaltraining and the Royal Dutch Cricket Association (KNCB) sign a three-year sponsorship agreement. Tupkertaaltraining will annually provide services to the cricket community in the field of language, media and communication training.
Monica Visser, CEO of the KNCB, is pleased with the knowledge partnership: “About half of the Dutch cricket community consists of people from other countries. These can be expats who are temporarily stationed here or people who have settled here permanently. We are very pleased that Tupkertaaltraining can meet a primary need of these people: teaching them the basics of the Dutch language and also helping them to integrate.”
Richard Walraven of Tupkertaaltraining explains: “Language is the pre-eminent means of integration in Dutch society; in sports, social life and at school. The better the communication between people, the better things go. Our knowledge partnership with the KNCB will lead to a great collaboration.”
