Dutch 1-to-1 General

These lessons in Dutch are wider-ranging in their nature, and are driven towards students who have a variety of differing needs. All beginner students will expect to study enough survival Dutch to get them through a short visit to the country, those staying on with the lesson can progress differently, depending on their individual requests and requirements. Whether you are buying property in a foreign country, married to a foreign national, planning a round-the-world trip, interested in Dutch history and culture, or if you simply want to attain a particular level of Dutch, this is the choice for you.


Dutch 1-to-1 Business

Those who would benefit the most from these Dutch tutorials are those who feel they need to learn Dutch to help them out in their business lives. For starters, learning salutations and business etiquette is integral; once these have been practiced then reading and writing lessons can start. Typical studiers have been those involved in international import/export, negotiations and acquisitions, those in multinational companies requiring another language, and those working in any way with international governments and relevant administration. Just our simplest lesson for beginners will have students finishing the lessons with basic telephone and e-mail Dutch, as well as survival Dutch should a visit to the country be necessary.
