Dutchessa offers Dutch Language Courses to expats who are familiar with the English language. Internationals from all over the world are welcome to join us in The Dutch Language Experience! Setteling in a new country can be challenging, but knowing how to communicate will surely help you get started. Dutchessa’s teaching methods are interactive, enjoyable and effective. Our schedules are flexible; they are not carved in stone. It is always possible for us to schedule an extra course if there is a demand for it.
Whether you are here for a long period, or simply want to get better acquainted with the language, Dutchessa offers a wide variety of courses. Generally, there are four levels you can choose from: starters, intermediate, advanced and NTII-2 exam training. We also offer intensive immersion courses for those of you who want to dive in and get started right away! For detailed information about all our courses, feel free to browse through our courses menu. The Courses are held in both Amsterdam (Herengracht 282) and The Hague (Prinsestraat 53).
“Dutchessa’s classes made learning a daunting new language almost fun, with a good balance between structured learning (grammar) and practical, conversational language – the things you want to be able to say at the market, in a restaurant, when you introduce yourself to your Dutch neighbors… Success lies in getting out there and giving it a go…!” Catherine, (a former student of Dutchessa). Dutchessa has focussed her teaching methods and philosophy on the needs of the student: learning a new language has to be practical, practiced and with care for the person.
