Learn Dutch while…
… and many more activities!
Natives speakers welcome!
Outside the Dutch Language Café I don’t have a lot of opportunities to speak Dutch, because at many other activities in the city people speak English. But here you have a chance to speak Dutch with real Dutch natives and get to know their culture and habits. It’s the best way to learn Dutch in The Hague!

How does it work?
We know it’s hard to learn Dutch. Courses are expensive, boring, and time-consuming. And in the real world, everybody switches to English all the time!
Here, you won’t find boring classrooms.
Instead, we believe the best way to learn a language is to speak it! In real life, with real people, doing fun activities.
By becoming a member, you will join a community of friendly natives and non-natives. Together, you will do many different fun and interesting activities, such as playing board games, knitting, cooking, barbecues, movie nights, pic nics, walks on the beach, and much more!
During those activities, we practice speaking Dutch! It is a safe space. Everybody is friendly, speaks slowly, helps you, and don’t care if you make mistakes. It is the perfect opportunity to boost your confidence, improve your speaking, but also to meet new people!
We are open to all levels of speakers. Are you a beginner? No worries! We have a special guidance & coaching program that will quickly get your Dutch to a level where you can comfortable enjoy community activities and continue your learning from there!
Native speakers are welcome too! Here you can meet new people, do interesting activities, develop your skills, help others and have lots of fun! Click here for more information for native speakers!

What is nice about the DLC is that you can discover a lot of things (the language, the culture…) but also meet a lot of people. Moreover, anyone who would like to learn Dutch can join the DLC to play games or to have a drink. Finally, the DLC is the best memory of my Dutch experience!
At Dutch Language Café we practice speaking Dutch by playing many different games, Ping-Pong and enjoying a drink together. I have gotten to know many fun and interesting people through Dutch Language Café, some of whom I now consider to be my friends. Come by some time and see for yourself!
The first time I came to the Dutch Language Café was 6 months ago. I enjoyed it a lot, because I came into contact with all kinds of nationalities. After this I came to the Dutch Language Café every week. To people who are considering coming, I would like to say: You’re not going to regret it!
