Preparing for an interview?
Learning the language of business or your field of work?
Then individual lessons may be a great fit for you!
Taking individual (private) lessons is one of the most personal, immersive and effective methods to learn a foreign language. Instruction is designed according to your speed and interest, and you have the teacher's full attention. Lessons are adapted to your requirements, interests, and previous experience in with the Dutch language. They can be used for anything from preparing for an interview, a presentation of business ideas at work, or simply learning useful phrases and vocabulary.
The course schedule is flexible and scheduled to meet your needs. Individual courses can be arranged for a single participant or if you prefer, for small groups of up to three participants.
Your needs and objectives are first analysed and then used to create a personalised program for you adapted to your requirements and schedule. The program is offered at all levels, from beginner to advanced. The course may also be conducted with specified content and vocabulary that one wishes to learn, such as literature, business or other subjects. In most cases, a placement test is first conducted to see whar your current level and knowledge of the Dutch language is. The participant is allowed to first purchase one session separately to try out the teaching style. After this first session a purchase of minimum 5 lesson hours for a certain period is required (for example 5 lesson hours within 2 months or 10 lesson hours within 3 months).

The participants are allowed to first purchase one session separately to try out the teaching style.
