Our Dutch lessons are interactive, with a high focus on conversation, given by enthusiastic teachers. Although the teacher will speak Dutch from the beginning as much as possible, we use English to explain things on the lower levels (mainly level 1, 2 and a bit on level 3). On the higher levels (4, 5, 6), the teacher speaks only in Dutch. Maximum group size is 16 students.
We use our own book:
– ‘Het Lesboek-1’ from 0 to A2 (level 1, level 2)
– ‘Het Lesboek-2’ from A2 to B1 (level 3, level 4)
– ‘Het Lesboek-3’ B1/B2 (level 5, 6)

Homework & e-learning: doing the homework is essential (count on at least 3-4 hours per day). Part of the homework consists of online materials. With these materials you prepare for the next day’s lesson: that makes the classroom lesson more efficient and interactive.
Our method is based on the flipped classroom. Learn more in this article why the flipped classroom is so effective.
