‘Inburgeren’ means to ‘citizen in’. Weird, right?
It’s the verb that came into existence when the Netherlands couldn’t deal with the big stream of ‘newcomers’ (=nieuwkomers, immigrants), when right wing and racist thinking was on the rise. That’s obviously not a scientific fact but mainly your favourite Dutch learning platforms humble opinion. The word, fortunately, lost most of its negative connotation. Now it’s just the verb used for everyone interested in gaining Dutch citizenship.
The Dutch civic integration exam is called ‘het inburgeringsexamen’. You can see the connection. And you guessed it – inburgeren.nl is the official website the government runs for this exam and its procedure. Want to ace your inburgering? Click here!
On the website of the inburgering, you can find several example exams. If you’re serious about learning Dutch, you will use this information wisely. And make all those exams. Several times. And do let us know if you can use some extra help..;)
