Dutch TV episode and lesson plan – Becoming a mum in Melbourne

Dutch TV is a weekly television program on community TV Channel 31 in Melbourne and Geelong (Australia) and Foxtel Aurora. (Australia wide) We have been broadcasting for 4 years.  The program is about Dutch people living in Australia and is presented mostly in Dutch with English subtitles so that we can connect to everyone who has a link with the Netherlands.  We cover topics such as Dutch culture in Australia, shared heritage and new topics from Holland.

8 May 2016 episode

Becoming a mum overseas is a series of profiles of mums who live in different suburbs in Melbourne. They tell their stories having a baby overseas in their suburb. This is the first interview with lots of tips in this segment; mothergroup, baby cinema, coffeeshops etc.   Later in the video, Watblief teaches up what a particular Dutch expressions means, and there is a Tedx talk from TEDxAmsterdam.

We’d love to know if you find that useful, and can create more to correspond with future or even past episodes of Dutch TV.
