When I worked summers in Spain it helped me by knowing Spanish. You should try to learn basics so you can get the edge over other foreigner trying to get summer work.
Not sure how difficult it is in Netherland but can imagine its not too hard considering how tourist bound this country is. Probably big influx of summer workers there just like other EU nation.
Not sure which City but this is informations I can tell you, dont stay inside the city you working in. Stay somewhere 40minute-60minute away. Netherland has good train service? I think. Just dont spend alot of your money you get from working on living.
Hi, I've been working there for a year so I can give you my feedback:
1. Dutch is not needed, nearly everyone there speaks fluent english, and yes if you're struggling with dutch, they'll switch to english
2. There is a lot of work in the Netherlands, but then it depends on your fields of expertise, I would say that if you didnt finish high school yet you can probably find job in touristic activities. Tricky part though about getting a salary in the netherlands, is that you need to register to the city council and get your tax number, and honestly thats a struggle because you need to already have a place where to live to get it, and the housing market is crazy. I think if you only stay for a short period you can get your tax number quicker but i dont know how it works exactly, check how to get a temporary BSN.
3. Amsterdam is pretty but it is indeed expensive as hell and housing market is a nightmare. It is hyper touristic though, so probably a lot of work opportunities but I would suggest not to live in Amsterdam and just commute if you find a job there
1. If you plan on staying there, maybe learn it in the long term, but you absolutely will not need it. English is simply everywhere. Yes, most Dutch people will swap to English if you're struggling.
2. Given your age, not hard at all. There is a wide job market with good wages (though I would note, a higher cost of living).
3. Amsterdam is nice, perhaps not as nice as some people say, but its biggest problem is the housing market. Personally, I'd recommend somewhere southern, as that's where I've lived before, but I can't really give much more help than that.
Blame the letter g. Not sure about Dutch food. Hope this helps!
is it true the netherlands is full of blonde thots
1. No, There is 0 need to learn Dutch aslong as you speak English.
2. Its very easy to find minimum wage jobs for sure. (I would advise construction work for better pay.)
3. Which city is the best is very hard, Finding housing anywhere in The Netherlands is very difficult right now.
Yes Amsterdam is very expensive so i wouldn't advise it.
