Learning (or guessing) the meaning of abbreviations is sometimes hard enough in your own language. Let alone learning them in a new language! Are you getting used to Dutch abbreviations?
Today’s question is about an abbreviation that has become a term on it’s own: ZZP-er. Do you know business people who call themselves ZZP-ers? Do you know what being a ZZP-er means? Chances are you do. But do you know what the letters Z Z P stand for? Choose the right answer.
A) Zelfstandige Zonder Personeel
B) Zonder Zekerheid Persoon
The correct answer is A) Zelfstandige Zonder Personeel. It refers to someone who works independently (zelfstandig), instead of working for a boss. You own a small business without employees (zonder personeel).
