Frequently Asked Questions – Dutch Summer School

COVID-19 UPDATE:

There will be an offline Dutch Summer School in 2022.

We’ve updated our general conditions.

In short:
1. Book now, pay 2 months prior to the course.
2. Free cancellation up to 2 months prior to the course. Cancelling more than 1 month prior to the course 80% refund, more than 2 weeks prior to the course: 70% refund, less than 2 weeks prior to the course: 50% refund.
3. We will follow the government safety regulations (if needed, we’ll organise the course with masks, 1.5m distance, testing, QR-code or whatever government measures at the time of the course; hopefully none of these measures will be imposed).
4. As an organiser of courses with accommodation we have significant up-front fixed costs and we simply can’t offer full refunds in any situation when cancelling less than 2 months prior to the course. If you fear travel restrictions, possible government measures that are not acceptable for you, or other situations that might prevent you from doing the course: Please don’t book the Summer School this year, or accept the risk of cancellation costs.
5. In case there are government measures that make it impossible to organise the Summer School at all, the student will have 3 options to choose from: 1. a full refund 2. converting to an online programme 3. reschedule to a later date.
6. We will not offer the Amsterdam accommodation anymore as ‘package fee’ because we are unable to agree on more flexible cancellation terms. You pay the accommodation directly to the hotel (and their cancellation policy applies). The Drenthe programme is still offered as ‘package fee’: one reservation for course and accommodation.

We are really looking forward to running our Summer School programme again! We hope you will understand that we can do this only, at the current rates, having the policy as mentioned above.

Choosing Amsterdam or Drenthe?

We run our program on 2 locations. The content of the course is absolutely the same (books, methods) but the atmosphere is totally different. So the question, which one should you choose?

Group atmosphere

In Drenthe there is a strong group atmosphere. Students spend time together outside the classes. 95% of the people who book a course in Drenthe, stay at the language campus (located at a holiday park). Despite the different individual backgrounds (nationalities, ages, religions), in Drenthe we usually are able to create 1 large community.

In Amsterdam you wont find this kind of group atmosphere. The majority of the students see each other only in class. That has a few reasons: only one third of the students books a room in our residence (others already live in Amsterdam or other nearby cities). But also, the people who book the course with accommodation, have each their individual reasons to visit Amsterdam. One wants to visit all the museums, while someone else wants to party. So there is no one large group, but there might be smaller groups of students with a similar mindset who do things together.

Sightseeing

Is this the first time for you in the Netherlands? You want to see a lot? Not only Amsterdam but all the main cities? Then perhaps Amsterdam is the right location for you. With public transport you reach cities like Rotterdam, Utrecht and The Hague easily. Please note: our programme is very intensive, the time for sightseeing during the course is limited. If you want to see a lot, you might want to consider a few extra days in the Netherlands before/after the course. Our recommendation: let this not be the main factor choosing the your location. There are a lot of students who book Drenthe and then have a few extra days in one of the cities.

Classroom facilities

Our Amsterdam classrooms are conference rooms in a business center. Our Drenthe classrooms are in a house style setting (kitchen/living room)… gezellig!

Budget

Amsterdam is an expensive city. The Student Hotel offers a single room with private bathroom (+ shared kitchen + free use of a bike) for an absolutely super price. You wont find anything cheaper in Amsterdam!

Nevertheless… Drenthe is still a lot cheaper… and depending on what type of room your prefer (single or shared) it can make quite a difference on the total price.

So, if you are on a budget, then consider Drenthe.

Cancellation terms – accommodation

Amsterdam – From 2022, the Amsterdam programme does not offer accommodation anymore. The reason that we don’t offer this as a part of the package is the cancellation policy of the hotel that is not in line with the NRTO general conditions. You can book the hotel directly at The Student Hotel – Amsterdam West.

Drenthe – contrary to the program in Amsterdam we are able to offer the same cancellation terms for course and accommodation. And in case of a situation where in-person training is not possible due to government regulations, you will be fully refunded for both course and accommodation.

Length

Drenthe – 9 days of class, 11 nights of accommodation
Amsterdam – 10 days of class, (best rate when booking 14 nights of accommodation)

Speaking Dutch

Amsterdam is a great city. It’s an international city, focussed on tourists and expats… If your goal is to speak Dutch, that can be a disadvantage sometimes. The Dutch people in Amsterdam are used to talking in English to foreigners…  It might require some perseverance to have them speak Dutch with you (we provide batches to make that easier). On the contrary, Dutch people at the country side are less used to speaking English, and they usually have more patience than people in a fast city. Therefore, our program in Drenthe might be a better option if your goal is to practise your Dutch in shops, restaurants and with people on the street.

Nature vs city

In Drenthe you are surrounded by nature (fields, forest, lakes). Some people really become very relaxed… which helps a lot when you need to focus on your studies.

But Amsterdam has parks… and some people like to do their homework at Starbucks.

Leaving your daily life behind.

Some people live in Amsterdam and therefore book a course in Amsterdam.
Some people live in Amsterdam and therefore book a course in Drenthe.

The advantage of leaving your home and going to a different place to study: you leave your daily life behind which allows you to focus 100%.

You know Amsterdam, but you don’t know Drenthe

A lot of people book Amsterdam, because they know it. And Drenthe they don’t know. No idea to get there, no idea what to expect… well, watch this video that we made with our students:

RESUMING

Our school in Amsterdam is more like a normal language school. You go to class, you do your homework… and if youre open for it, you will find some friends with whom you can do things together outside the classes. We only have a few social activities (which are attended usually by 25-30% of the students).

Drenthe is much more of an experience… the real feeling of being at a camp… a language learning camp for adults. We have more social activities (which are usually attented by 85-95% of the students). And 95% of the students books a course with accommodation.

We have many students who visit us more than once. We have also students who studied on both locations. Most of them prefer Drenthe.

When should you NOT book our course?

We dont have the goal of selling as much courses as possible. We really want to have the right mix of students, people who are motivated and like our concept. Only that way, we can create together the unique atmosphere of living and studying together, and go for the best learning results.

For this reason, we advise when you should NOT book our courses.

Dont book our courses if you dont master English

We use English as the instruction language on the lower levels -> from level 1 to 3 (0 to A2+). Many studies have proven that using an instruction language to explain things is more efficient than full immersion (where the teacher only speaks in Dutch). That doesnt mean that the teacher only speaks in English, but during instruction she/he will. We strongly believe in this approach. Only on the higher levels 4, 5, R (A2/B1/B2) the teacher speaks only in Dutch.

Secondly, English is the organisations language (letters, announcements will be made in English, because we always have beginner groups and we want everybody to understand everything).

Dont just send someone to our course…

Important remark for employers, parents, spouses and other sponsors…

Most of our students book and pay for this course themselves. The student has found us on the internet… perhaps is using our online materials (learndutch.org) and then decides to do an investment. This is the best possible motivation.

If you are an employer who wants to send an employee, or you are a parent and want to send your child… then please be sure that your employee or child have 100% motivation to learn the language and to do that in our way.

Our whole method is based on the inner motivation of the student to learn Dutch. This is not a strict school system, where students are punished when not doing the homework, or where they need to pass an exam in the end. Our students should have the true desire to learn this language (not because someone else wants this and pays for the course!).

We consider this one of our strongest points. Both students and teachers who had classes at other language schools, confirm that the overall level of motivation of the students is exceptionally high at our program, which boosts the group result.

This is camp for adults, not for children!

We are frequently contacted by parents who want to send their children. Please note: this is a camp for adults, not for children!

There is no supervision.

Those who are under 18 and want to participate, are expected to behave like adults… that means: that one should be able to travel independently, and as our accommodation is based on self catering, one should be able to prepare his/her own meals. Apart from that – our way of teaching is not like a childrens school system. As explained above, it is based on the inner motivation to learn the language: doing homework because you want to learn the language, not because the teacher tells you to do so.

Dont book this course if you dont like homework

Our students visit us to learn the language. Our students want results. A very important factor to get results is self study. Count on 3-4 hours per day.

We work with the flipped-classroom principle. That means that each student prepares for the next lesson with our online materials. This way, we can focus on applying the acquired knowledge in class. That makes the lessons more efficient and interactive. It has no sense to come to class without having done the homework.

Dont book this course if you plan to work at the same time

It is not recommended to work part-time during this course.

Our course is intensive and it requires your full attention. Count on 3-4 hours of homework additional to the hours in class. In the free hours… some rest is also important.

Of course, if its just answering mails for 30 minutes/day then it is not a problem.

The majority of our students are higher educated

We dont have a strict requirement that everybody should have higher education. But people, who spend their holidays learning a language, are usually higher educated. Our students are doctors, programmers, managers, entrepreneurs etc. Our courses have a challenging pace and are designed for higher educated people.

That doesnt mean that you cant participate at our courses if you didnt finish university… If you are lower educated, or you are extremely slow in learning languages… count on spending more time on your homework and a decent preparation prior to the course (with the help of our e-learning package) will definitely help.

If you come for 2 sessions or more, you might think about re-doing a level if the pace is too high, before going to the next level.

We don’t provide assistance in getting a visa

Most nationalities do not need a visa to come to the Netherlands.

If your nationality requires a visa to travel to the Netherlands, please make sure you’re able to arrange a visa. We do not provide visa support, so that means that you need a company or a private person who are able to provide a visa invitation letter and who can guarantee your stay and financial means.

You cant book this course with a DUO-loan.

The Dutch governments provides loans to learn Dutch (for example to refugees). Our organisation does not have an accreditation by DUO, that means that you can’t use the loan to do our courses. There are many language schools operating on this specific market already. And we like to do our own thing… We want to focus on higher educated people who want to learn the language during their holiday, and we like a mix of all nationalities. We dont have the capacity to deal with related bureaucratic procedures, as we prefer to spend all our time on creating new and interesting learning materials.

Psychological strength…

Our courses are very intensive. You meet a lot of new people. During 2 weeks or more you intensively study together, live together and spend time together outside the classes. That may require a lot of energy, also psychologically. We sometimes see that for some people it can be a little overwhelming. And for some people it can be even too much… What one person experiences as a very relaxing language holiday, can cause stress to someone else… It is very difficult for us to tell when you should and should not book a course, but think twice if you have suffered from depressions or psychological disorders…

TIP: be fresh at the start of the course, if possible avoid a jetlag at the start of the course… if you travel from far, consider arriving a bit earlier… and dont plan that busy work week right before the course (if you can). And the better you are prepared with our online materials… the smoother your start will be. That will give you a good feeling at the beginning of your course.

RESUMING

You dont find a reason above NOT to book our course? Well, then probably this course is made for you!

We publish:
– the course dates for the next Summer School (June/July/August/September) on dutchsummerschool.nl
– the course dates for the next Winter School (January/February) on dutchwinterschool.nl
– the course dates for the virtual classrooms (year-round) on www.learndutch.org/learn-dutch-virtual-classroom/

LEVEL DESCRIPTIONS

Please have a look at our detailed specification of levels, before you enroll at our Summer School.

DETERMINE YOUR LEVEL NOW:

If you don’t know your level, please do the level determination test first. It will give a good advice on what level you should enroll if you would do the course now.

YOU PLAN TO STUDY BETWEEN NOW AND SUMMER:

If you plan to study intensively between now and the Summer, use the next rule of thumb:
– you can add 1 block for each 60-100 hours you spend on studying Dutch

If you plan to study with our elearning package before the Summer:
– if  you are a beginning Dutch learner (zero level or just started): if you complete our e-learning module #dutchgrammar before Summer, you will be able to enroll on the level follow up (A1). Choose that level when booking!
– if you have A1 level or you are weak A2: if you complete our e-learning module #dutchgrammar-2 (to be published in May 2016) before Summer, you will be able to enroll on the second level follow up plus (A2).

IF YOU DOUBT

Contact the course coordinator, to help you determine the right level.

SWITCHING DURING YOUR STAY:

It is good to know that it is possible to switch levels during your stay – as long as we have availability in the other groups.

There is no specific deadline for application. As long as we have availability, you can book the course.

Attention: some Summer courses may reach full booking quite early. If you can come only on a specific date or want want a specific type of accommodation, it is recommended not to wait too long to book your course.

It is possible to book with the early bird rate:
– for the Dutch Summer School –  until the 24th of April.
– for the Dutch Winter School – until the 30th of October.

More information in the ‘prices’ section on the website.

WHEN:
You will get a payment link 75 days prior to the start of the course; with a 14 days payment term.

HOW:
You can pay per bank transfer, per credit card or with iDEAL.

Our Summer School atracts usually around 300-350 participants.

Our Winter School atracts usually around 150-200 participants.

These participants are divided over two locations and several course periods. This means that at one location at the same period, there are usually 2-4 groups (of 12-16 students): 25-60 students.

We have students of all ages:
– 39% of our participants is below 25
– 38% between 25-40
– 23% is above 40

There is not really an age difference between Amsterdam and Drenthe.

The minimum age for participation is 18 years. We are willing to accept students above 16, in case the parents write a special letter declaring that the student behaves like an adult, is independent, able to travel and cook by him/herself.

Under some conditions (travelling with a parent, good command of English, high motivation) we may allow a younger student to the group.

From everywhere!

Western-Europe: 38%
Eastern-Europe: 18%
North-America: 15%
Middle & South America: 6%
Africa: 9%
Middle East: 7%
Asia: 4%
Australia & New Zealand: 3%

Yes, of course!

About 10% of our students has the Dutch nationality, but never learned to speak it. Typically children from a transnational marriage, with 1 of the parents being Dutch; who always lived outside the Netherlands.

Amsterdam Airport is one of the largest airports of Europe. It won’t be a problem to find a convenient flight. From the airport to the student residence it’s just 20 minutes by public transport.

All participants get a briefing letter in the first week of June, with clear explanations how to get to the residence and school.

If you are looking for a budget flight, please check Eindhoven airport used by airlines like Ryanair and Wizzair. There is a direct train from Eindhoven to Amsterdam (less than 1,5 hour).

Some people are worried about booking Drenthe, because they think it’s difficult to get there. No reason for that!

In the first week of June we send a briefing letter with exact instructions on how to get to Drenthe. It’s just 2 hours from the Amsterdam Airport and you reach it by train (railway station Beilen) with 1 stop-over. At the arrival and departe day, we have a driver available for transfers between the railway station and the resort.

Count on approximately 3-4 hours of homework per day.

For a good result, it is extremely important that you review the lesson of today, before you enter the classroom tomorrow.

No, meals are not included. In all our residences, there is a shared kitchen that you can use to prepare meals.

Nearby grocery stores:
– Amsterdam – 5 minutes by bike
– Drenthe – 10-15 minutes by bike / 25-30 minutes walk*

* In practice: there are always some students who come by car, and often people do groceries together.

No, sorry. We are a language school, not a travel agency.

Most nationalities won’t require a visa to travel to the Netherlands for a short stay (less than 3 months).

NO VISA FOR SHORT STAY:
That counts for: EU countries, US, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Japan, most non-EU European countries and more.

SHORT STAY VISA REQUIRED:
Countries that do require a visa: most Asian and African countries and former CIS countries (like Russia, Kazakhstan etc).

If you don’t know: please check the Dutch Migration Service.

SCHENGEN VISA
If you already have a Schengen visa, issued by another country for the same period, you don’t need to apply for a Dutch visa.

No, unfortunately we don’t provide visa support letters and we don’t provide assistance in obtaining a visa.

You can register for the program if you already have a right to stay in the Netherlands, based on:
– a (temporary) residence permit
– if you have a nationality that does not require a visa for stays up to 90 days
– if you have or are able to arrange yourself a valid visa for a the Netherlands / a different Schengen country

More information here: https://www.netherlandsworldwide.nl/travel/visas-for-the-netherlands

We recommend to check official government websites for the latest information on travel bans regarding with respect to the  pandemic. Don’t book a course if you’re not sure you can travel to the Netherlands.

Yes, at our residences there is free wifi access.

The Netherlands is approximately equally expensive as any other Western European country. How much money you spend additionally will depend on yourself. You can make it as cheap and as expensive as you want.

In cheap grocery stores (like the German discounters Aldi and Lidl), you really don’t pay much for decent quality food. Some students are surpised to see a whole bread priced at 1 euro, bottles of soda for less than 1 euro or wine bottles for less than 3 euros. Good to know that even in the village next to our resort in Drenthe, there is a Lidl grocery store.

If you go to a bar, you will pay between 2,50 and 3,00 for a drink. The cheapest restaurants (even in Amsterdam) provide tourist meals or pizza’s for about 10 euros. But if you want quality dining, you may spend 30-40 euro on a meal in a restaurant.

Tickets for museums usually rate at 10-15 euros. Public transport: travelling within the city 1-3 euros per ride. Train tickets: 50 km approximately: 10 euros (one-way), cross the Netherlands for 25 euros (one-way).

Amsterdam hotels, but also apartments by Airbnb are extremely expensive! Our student residence is great value for money. Warning: if you book our lessons-only package with the idea to book a hotel at the last moment, you are going to spend thousands of euros extra. Please plan in advance!

Yes, the time next to the classes you can spend as you want. As long as you don’t forget to do your homework!

If we organise additional activities, participation is not obligatory.

Yes, we issue a certificate, when 80% of the lessons are attended.

What is the value of the certificate:
It will proove your participation. You can show your employer, put it on the wall or on your resume. You can use it as an indication when taking a language course elsewhere.

What it is not:
Our certificate will not exempt you from any exam of the Dutch government. Such as the ‘inburgeringsexamen’ (civic integration exam) or the ‘basis examen inburgering buitenland’ (Basic Civic Integration Examination Abroad). In the Netherlands, only the government can issue certificates that have legal value, and language schools can only help you to prepare for that.

Yes!

In Drenthe, we offer the option to book an extra weekend at the end of the course. So you will check-out on Monday in-stead of Friday.

Costs: check this
How to apply: complete the intake-form that we send 1 month prior to the course.

Q: Is it possible to check-in earlier?
A: No, for logistics reasons (cleaning and check-in on Monday) this is not possible.

Q: Is it possible to book a different amount of extra nights
A: No, only the full weekend. Of course, you can leave on Saturday or Sunday, but that would not influence the price.

Did you check both locations? We have 2 locations. It may be that when there is no course on one location, we serve that level on our other location.

If you want to participate, but there is no course on your level in the period you want to come. Let us know! We will put you on a list. If we see there is enough interest to open a group on specific level/date, we will contact you.

We run a Summer School  (in June/July/August/September) and a Winter School (in January/February).

The rest of the year, we offer classes online (virtual classrooms), more information here: https://www.learndutch.org/learn-dutch-virtual-classroom/

By concentrating our courses to a certain part of the year, we are able to offer groups on many levels at an attractive price (and with the guarantee that the course always  takes place).

Yes, that is possible if you. You can always book one level at one location and the next level at the other location.

It’s also possible to do a level online (in a virtual classroom course) and then do the next level at the Summer or Winter School.

How? You book it as 2 separate courses on our website.

We offer partial refunds:

– refund 100 euros – if someone writes a blog during the stay: contact the course coordinator if you are interested
– doing a translation assignment (subtitling our elearning videos) – work/refund to be discussed

In all other situations: we do not negotiate our pricing.

‘Oost-West’ Scholarship

Are you a national and full time university student from one of the countries below?
Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine

Well, then you’re eligible for a scholarship that covers 80% of the costs of your course and accommodation.

From the founder Bart de Pau:

When I was a student, I learned Russian by myself, as I was interested in what used to be the world behind the Iron Curtain. I did not have the money to travel to Russia to stay there for a longer time. But then, I was lucky to meet the right people who sponsored my internship and training in St. Petersburg. That experience was essential for my later career, and it’s the reason I do what I do today. 

I believe that learning a language is the ultimate way to build connections between people from different countries. A better mutual understanding will lead to a better world. The current situation in Europe shows this need even more. 

I also know that university students have limited means, especially in countries where the price level is different. In that sense, there still is a difference between East and West; even though the ‘Iron Curtain’ was brought down more than 30 years ago. I’m grateful for the opportunity that I got myself from, and I want to do something in return to give other people the same chance. Besides, I want to contribute in my way in creating a better mutual understanding.

Starting form 2022, I will offer up to 5 scholarships every year for people who want to join the Dutch Summer School / Dutch Winter School.

Conditions:
– you are a full time university student
– you are between 18-27 years old
– you’re a national from one of the countries below AND you study at a university in one of these countries:
Albania, Belarus, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Croatia, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Kosovo, Latvia, Lithuania, Macedonia, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, Ukraine
– you can show a proof from your university
– 
you haven’t lived in the Netherlands/Belgium before for a period of more than 1 year
– the scholarship is for: 1 course level including accommodation in Drenthe
– accommodation: a shared room (you stay in a double room with someone that has the same gender)
own contribution = 150 euros, the rest is sponsored, the book you will get for free
– count on extra costs = costs for traveling to the Netherlands, 15 euros per day for food/expenses, transfer from/to the railway station (8 euros/transfer)
– high season course periods are excluded
– we ask you to write a blog about your stay in your own language (we hope to reach other people in your country, and inform them about the Netherlands and the Dutch language)
– you can do any level; from total beginner to advanced
– maximum 5 scholarships per year will be granted

How to apply?

Please complete this form

We’ll let you know before 1st of June if the scholarship was awarded to you.

Yes, you can. An intensive Dutch language course like ours, is a very good way to prepare.

An important note:
Our courses are focussed on acquiring Dutch language knowledge, with the goal to use it. Developing conversation skills is important. Not all students do our course with the purpose to pass an exam. Therefore, our courses are not specifically aimed at learning how to pass the exam (such as training exam questions) and covering certain additional topics (like KNS). However, that is something you can learn and practice by yourself.

Yes, you can.

Most suitable for this purpose is Drenthe: here you can choose for a studio accommodation (for 2 people) or a rent your own living unit (4 people) if you plan to come with your family.

Our rooms in Amsterdam are single rooms. There are some double rooms, but in general the total cost of 2 single rooms, equals the cost of 1 double room.

We recommend to choose Drenthe, if:
– several participants of your family want to do a course and you want to live together in 1 living unit (have your own kitchen, bathroom)
– 1 participant, wants to take a few non-studying family members and live together

Our living units in Drenthe can accommodate 4 people. At the resort, there are also luxury villa’s available for larger families (a significant extra cost). If you’re interested, ask the course coordinator.

The minimum age is 18 years.

However, if someone is just below that age, participation can be discussed. Under certain conditions we do allow:
– travelling with a parent (or other adult who is responsible)
– good command of English
– familiar with learning foreign languages

Important:
Our course is adult education: based on the idea that the student has an inner motivation to learn Dutch. We do not force people to attend classes, or to do the homework. We just expect that. This is not a summer camp under full supervision. We have no resources to provide extra attention to youngsters, to correct behaviour or to take responsibility for what they do outside the classroom.

If you are a parent, and thinking about sending your child(ren), feel free to contact us for advice. In the past, we had a few young students in Drenthe (13-16 years travelling with parents)  who very successfully integrated in the group of adults. When travelling without parents at the age of 17-18, it is important to make the right decision between the ‘big city’ and the resort.

No, sorry, we don’t work with DUO-loans.

Timetable of the lessons

Regular Summer/Winter Schools in Amsterdam, Drenthe

We work with a shifting schedule. That means that half of the days you have class in the morning, the other half in the afternoon. You can have either schedule A (first day in the morning) or schedule B (first day in the afternoon).

We know in advance which levels at which location have which schedule (see below). However, this might change if the total number of groups change (for example when we open an extra group). Therefore, the schedules below are very likely, but are only confirmed in the week before the course.

Please note: this is an intensive Dutch course; and we do NOT recommend to combine it with a job. Take into account that the amount of homework is 3-4 hours/day.

If you are dependend on a certain schedule, we recommend to contact us before booking.

Drenthe – arrival Monday (check-in: after 15:00), departure Friday (check-out before 10:00).

There are no lessons scheduled on the arrival day (the ‘check-in’ date). It would be nice to see you during the welcome event!

We prefer to work directly with students. Direct contact is important for logistics reasons and level assessment. We aim at having the best possible prices. That means a low margin: not sufficient to pay agent commissions, that are usual in the market.
