Conversation, culture and sense of humour
We teach all levels (0-C1 CEFR) in various formats – reaching from a ten days intensive course, or a six week conversation course to a flexible in-company course to prepare you and your colleagues/employees for the NT2 state exam.
Throughout our courses, we focus on communication and Dutch culture, allowing our students to “home in on Holland” (which is also the title of our own, acclaimed teaching method) as soon as possible. To make sure that you get all the attention and feedback you need, we exclusively work with small groups and professional teachers with a thorough knowledge of Dutch (and a good sense of humour).
