Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) General Dutch

Dutch lessons of this type are broader and are aimed towards students with a variety of requirements. While all beginner level students will cover survival Dutch - needed for short visits to countries where English isn't widely spoken, or if you wish to 'go local'; those studying Dutch usually go in different directions at this point, depending on what they need. Those who have benefitted from these Dutch classes have been those investing in or buying property overseas, those married to overseas nationals, people setting off on a round-the-world trip, enthusiasts in Dutch culture, and those enthusiastic to pass a specific exam in Dutch.

Face-to-Face 1-to-1 (Individual) Business Dutch

These lessons in Dutch are meant for those that feel that learning Dutch would make a change in their work. For starters, it is expedient to learn how to say hello/goodbye, as well as basic business protocol; once the basics have been mastered, reading and writing come to the fore. Students who have greatly benefitted have been involved in import/export, international negotiations and acquisitions, jobseekers in multinational companies where another language is required, and those working in the international academia and government circuits. Even on our most fundamental beginner's lesson, students can anticipate ending the lesson with basic telephone Dutch and e-mail Dutch skills for communicating, as well as survival Dutch if a short visit to the country is needed.
