Covid-19 update 29.11.2021:  Our evening courses (any course ending after 17:00) are continuing with online lessons due to the partial evening lockdown announced by the Dutch government. If you are participating in an evening course, you have been informed about this via email. This will be the case at least up to and including 18.12.2021. Daytime courses ending before 17:00 are continuing as planned in our classrooms. We will keep using our health and safety protocol for classroom-based, including the observing of 1.5 meter social distancing rules, sanitation and desinfection guidelines, and limited group sizes. Please contact us if you have any other questions.


These are practical lessons to improve your conversational ability, pronunciation, and grammar in daily conversation, and are especially helpful for those who have difficulties with spoken Dutch.
