Individual Dutch courses
Fully personalized Dutch lessons
Private lessons are tailor-made to suit your needs. They can be online, face to face in one of our classrooms, or a combination of both. You can choose to work with the books, the e-learning module, both, or neither. You can follow along with our course plan or decide to focus on the skill or topic that is most relevant to you, for example pronunciation, casual conversation, grammar, medical terminology or exam preparation. You are encouraged to set your own goals. Whether it is to pass a certain exam, speak Dutch with your in-laws, hang out with your Dutch friend on the weekend, or understand the news on TV, our teachers are happy to create individual lessons just for you. The program is offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced.
Do you have your own specific learning goals, want to move at your own pace, or simply prefer having your teachers undivided attention? Our individual Dutch courses could be just what you need.Starting from 69 EUR
Course schedule and participants
The course schedule is flexible and scheduled to meet your needs. Individual courses can be arranged for a single participant or if you prefer, for small groups of up to three participants. Lessons may be planned when you like as long as a teacher (and classroom) is available. Lesson hours of 50 minutes are used for individual lessons. You may choose to do one or two lesson hours per lesson.
Your needs and objectives will be analysed to see whether individual lessons are the right fit for you. In most cases, a placement test is first conducted to see what your current level and knowledge of the Dutch language is unless you are a complete beginner. Then, we will create a personalised program for you adapted to your requirements and schedule. The course may also be conducted with specified content and vocabulary that one wishes to learn, such as literature, business or other subjects. The participant may first purchase one session separately to try out the teaching style. After this first session a purchase of minimum 5 lesson hours for a certain period is required (for example 5 lesson hours within 2 months or 10 lesson hours within 3 months).
2 – 3 participants
This course is ideal for friends, colleagues or a family who wish to study Dutch together. In this small private group course the lessons are adapted to the requirements of the participants. The course concentrates on your interests and is taught at a speed suitable for your group. All participants need to be at the same language level, proof of current Dutch proficiency in the form of past Dutch course certificates or results of a placement test are required. The participants are allowed to first purchase one session separately to try out our teaching style. After this first lesson a purchase of minimum 5 lesson hours for a certain period is required (for example 10 lesson hours within 3 months or 20 lesson hours within 6 months).
