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.

 
Dutch First offers a variety of language courses throughout the year ranging from four to sixteen weeks standard courses and two to eight weeks intensive courses, to a complete One-Year Program. Our secret to effective teaching and student success begins with our small class size (6 - 14), which enables teachers to maximize their attention on the individual student while guaranteeing them a dynamic learning environment. All of our courses are conducted in the target/taught language.  

 

Dutch First follows the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) levels when teaching Dutch. A table is provided below to clarify how Dutch First courses align with the Dutch Language Plan and CEFR Levels.
