Our language courses

We organize three different language courses. Two starter courses and one intermediate course. All our courses cost €10 per hour. The money compensates expenses made by tutors and the rest will be invested in our non-profit social enterprise! So, by learning Dutch, you will support other internationals as well! Read more below.

Courses typically last for 20 weeks, with one class of 2 hours per week. In addition, International Center organizes language lounges to practice Dutch in an informal fun context, such as Dutch movie and boardgame nights. On top, International Center organizes a kick-off gathering, half-way celebration and graduation ceremony!
