Dutch for Beginners I

What will I learn?

In this course for beginners, you will learn the basics of Dutch. Starting off with talking about yourself and having small, everyday conversations. Alongside general homework, you will receive practical assignments to immediately put your new knowledge into practice.

You will specifically become familiar with themes such as: introducing yourself, making appointments, placing an order in a bar or restaurant, talking about your weekend plans and what you did last weekend, asking for and giving directions, talking about celebrations, shopping at various shops.

Each class has a maximum of 8 participants, which ensures you get the most out of it. The teacher provides personal feedback, you get a lot of time to speak and simultaneously you learn from classmates who have other questions and experiences.

Evening & morning classes

We offer this course in the evenings and mornings. For those who work during office hours, we start after 17:00 and alternate start times every week: one week you have class at 17:15 and the other at 19:30. For those who are not tied to an office job, we also offer morning classes.

On-line or off-line?

Our courses can be offered either on-line or in the classroom/hybrid class. During the application process you can give your preference. After applying we set up an intake meeting.

Great Teacher. Very satisfied!

Lectures are fun and targeted to improve in every single one! The teacher always thinks about creative ways to practice our weaknesses and doesn’t just stick to the book.
Also we speak a lot in the class which for me is the most important.

Very satisfied student here:) – Alba
