Our lessons

"Wie ben je, wat doe je en waar kom je vandaan?”  "Who are you, what do you do and where do you come from?” Our Introduction to Dutch course for adults teaches the basics of the language. You will learn how to introduce yourself, conduct simple conversations and ask for directions to name a few examples. No prior knowledge of the language is required to join this fun-filled introduction to Dutch. The focus of the classes will be conversation and pronunciation, in addition to learning elementary grammar.

Our lessons are focused on achieving good verbal language skills using different themes and situations. Enrichment of the vocabulary, the correct pronunciation, grammar and conversational skills are taught.

Different levels

If there is enough interest we can also offer Dutch classes on a higher level (from A2 to B2) for adults that have already knowledge of Dutch.
