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

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.


These are completely free and will take no more than 15 minutes

Dutch Closed Group Lessons

Those wishing to learn Dutch in groups of 2 or more together (Two-to-One Dutch Lessons or Small Group In-Company Dutch Lessons) can sign up for our group classes. All students must be at nearly the same level of Dutch proficiency, must have the same needs from the language, and must be able to study at the same time and place as the others. Bookings must be made for all students simultaneously. Listen & Learn do not propose group sizes or more than 6-8 people, but In-Company Taster Dutch Lessons can occur with up to 12 people.
