If you choose for private tuition, your Dutch lessons can be put together according to your personal needs and preferences. Course content will be pulled from different sources, such as: the Boost Your Dutch training programme, beginner’s course (Nederlands 1) and intermediate course (Nederlands 2).

Private lessons might be more suitable, if you:

  • Prefer to receive Dutch tuition individually to allow you to work at your own level & pace.
  • Find it difficult to join a weekly class, e.g. when you are frequently involved in work-related travel
  • Cannot complete your homework on a regular basis / are looking for more guidance making exercises  

During all Dutch courses the following language skills will be trained: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

We appreciate that participants are well-educated, professional internationals with valuable experiences and skill sets, therefore these Dutch lessons are designed for small groups to facilitate personal attention, group interaction and speaking Dutch.

Start dates are scheduled throughout the year. No VAT (Dutch Sales Tax) will be added to these course fees, but please note that the course materials are not included in the course fees, i.e. the book: Nederlands in Gang, written by Berna de Boer.
