This course is designed to be an effective introduction to learning to understand, read, write and speak Dutch, making it a valuable survival tool in The Netherlands or Belgium.
After signing up we allocate to you, a personal language trainer who guides you through various aspects of the course. Topics covered includes: Pronunciation and articulation, most commonly used words, numbers and basic concepts generally taken for granted such as telling the time and introducing yourself.
More technical aspects such as grammar gets covered in detail, such as verbs, nouns, pronouns, plurals and tenses in their various forms. With a lot of multi-media tools and the guidance of your language coach, these topics are broken down into easy to process chunks which you will be able to implement on a day-to-day basis.
We also believe in teaching you the language to use as naturally as possible and don't make use of traditional means like drill sentences which are only intended to help you pass a specific test.

Intermediate Dutch online (Staatsexamen NT2)
Intermediate Dutch is focussed on further developing your abilities once you are familiar with the basics and have the foundation in place.
Your trainer starts you off by expanding on your understanding of sentences and expressions.
Here you learn to better communicate topics related to your general environment and beyond such as professional interactions, education and travelling among many others.
The aim of the course is to improve your abilities to the point where you can have more complex discussions and describe topics like dreams, experiences, future ambitions and many more topics in greater detail.
Use and understanding of grammar is significantly improved. More focus is given on how to use grammar correctly in more complex conversation, such as longer sentence constructions with more emphasis on timing and context.
Now you start experiencing your Dutch flow smoothly and the quality of your interactions improve significantly, leaving you with a greater sense of confidence and ability.
We take this opportunity to discuss the Dutch culture and community related topics which is useful to those who aren't familiar with this aspect of Dutch life.

CNaVT, ITNA and other exams
A workshop approach focused on preparation for these and other related examinations.
It is not suitable for beginners who want to take a shortcut, but rather experienced speakers who want to sharpen their skills specifically for examinations.

Group classes are beneficial in specific circumstances where colleagues, employees, families or groups of friends with the same timing and goals need training.
We offer courses for small group classes on request and based on the requirements of the group and assess how many participants we would include per class.
As the quality of information transfer gets reduced per attendee, we advise a maximum of 4 people per group and for less intensive training we can include up to 6 members.

Dutch for Afrikaans speakers
There is a common misconception that if you can speak Afrikaans, you can speak Dutch. This is not entirely accurate as the two languages share a very large part of their respective vocabularies but in practice there are some significant, and unexpected, hurdles to overcome to bridge the gap.
You can find some books and guides that are commercially available, but most of them are rather outdated and they don't place as much focus on bridging the practical gap as they do on the theoretical gap.
Our custom Dutch for Afrikaans course is created, maintained and updated by native and second language Afrikaans speakers, which is why it has become so hugely popular with South Africans. Ons praat jou taal en deel in jou kultuur.
