Kiwikorrels: Ferry derailed

kiwikorrelsFerry derailed

New Zealand exists of two main islands, very imaginatively called the North- and the South Island. Divided by the Cook Strait, a rough and windy waterway of thirty to one hundred kilometres wide. People wanting to go from one island to the other could use a small plane. But the majority of the people rely on the ferry.

Kiwikorrels: Throw away

An aluminium smelter has been in New Zealand since 1971. Aluminium is extracted from bauxite, particularly bauxite from Australia. The main owner of the factory is Rio Tinto, one of the largest multinationals in the world. In 2010, Rio Tinto made a profit of fourteen billion dollars. That includes the profit of ‘our’ aluminium smelter.

Nederlands Onderwijs in buitenland

Nederlands onderwijs in het buitenland ongekend populair

Steeds meer mensen kiezen ervoor om hun kinderen in het buitenland Nederlands onderwijs te laten volgen. In 2008 volgen ruim 10.000 kinderen wereldwijd Nederlands onderwijs. Dit is een stijging van 10% ten opzichte van 2007 en van bijna 50% ten opzichte van 1998. Vooral het aantal leerlingen dat het Nederlands onderwijs in deeltijd volgt, naast het lokale of internationale onderwijs, groeit sterk.

Children need to experience their native language and culture
When the first Dutch immigrants arrived in Australia fifty years ago, most did not speak one word of English. At the time, schools emphasized for the Dutch students to forget Dutch as soon as possible and only use English, because naturalising would be easier and quicker. Now Australia is experiencing the impact of this way of thinking.
