Our language courses

About our courses

We offer two different language courses. Both courses cost €10 per hour. The money compensates expenses made by tutors and the rest will be invested in our non-profit social enterprise. By learning Dutch, you will also support other internationals! 

The courses consist of one class of two hours per week. In addition, International Center organizes weekly homework sessions. To practice Dutch in an informal and fun setting, we also organize 'Language Lounges'. Think of Dutch movies and boardgame nights. To celebrate your progress, we traditionally host a half-way celebration and a graduation ceremony with free drinks for all of our students.

About our teaching method

Our courses will teach you the basics of the Dutch language. The courses are based on the method of Coutinho, 'Nederlands in Gang', a well-known method for learning Dutch as a second language.

Each class will have clear learning goals. The teacher will hand out a syllabus in which you will be able to see what is coming next and what is expected of you. Every two weeks you will have a small test to keep track of your progress. 

We expect that you will prepared for class, so that everyone can have the best learning environment possible. Therefore we provide weekly homework sessions. During these sessions you can prepare for class under the guidance of a Dutch native speaker.
