Group courses start 3 times a year, in September, January and May. All lessons take place at Boven de Balie, a coworking space at Leidseplein in the city centre of Amsterdam.
Educational by nature, fun by design
In every course you’ll learn to speak Dutch in a group of maximum 6 expats. The starting point is always a real-life language action which we will practice. The exercises are complemented with grammar, extra vocabulary and pronunciation skills. Note that we focus on speaking and making conversation, rather than on writing flawless for example.
Each course is 10 weeks, with a 2-hour class each week. When you do your homework, you will receive individual feedback on it. Every course is closed off with a test. Afterwards, you receive an official certificate of participation.
