Integration is faster when you are active in society

Fakhroldin feels at home everywhere. Because as an entrepreneur he sees opportunities everywhere. So he also started one initiative after the other in the Netherlands. Because he is so active in society, integration in combination with language lessons goes extremely fast.

Fakhroldin is an engineer and had a growing oil platform company in Iran, a big, beautiful house and a new car at the door. As an entrepreneur, he always had a flexible mind. So when it became clear that it was no longer safe for him in Iran, he decided
traveling to Europe with his wife and sons. After three months the family arrived in Woerden.

Friends are important to me. That is why I want to learn Dutch well and understand the country better

Sports

After a while, he set up a gym with others in the asylum seekers' center. "You saw people getting fatter every day. So we made sure they started exercising. " Among the volunteers who worked in the asylum seekers' center, the enterprising Fakhroldin, who speaks both Arabic and English, quickly stood out. Through one of them he was asked to translate for an export company. This went so smoothly that he soon got more work as an interpreter-translator, both outside and inside the asylum seekers center.

Friendship

'I am curious and always want to develop. So I have already done a lot of training. Also internationally. I therefore have friends all over the world. Friends are important to me. That is why I want to learn Dutch well and understand the country better. The Dutch appreciate it if you do your best to speak the language. " Fakhroldin followed an integration program at TopTaal. He started with the A1 level, and soon completed A2 and B1. He followed the course in the evening, so that he could go to the technical school during the day. He also finds it important that his wife and sons have a good command of Dutch. "My sons already speak Dutch very well and my wife Yasmin, who is very beautiful and smarter than me, is going to follow a follow-up course at TopTaal."

I had a great teacher. She is very involved and also helped with other things that were not for school

He is very enthusiastic about the lessons at TopTaal. "I had a great teacher. She is very involved and also helped with other things that were not for school. She made the lessons fun. But it was not easy. I still don't understand the difference between "the" and "it." Fakhroldin takes language lessons seriously. 'You can start a business in Iran and then you are immediately in business. It is much harder here. Language lessons are therefore the door to your future. "
