Welcome! Good to have you here. The Dutch Language Café is a place where people of many different nationalities come together, get to know each other and learn Dutch in The Hague a fun way.
We believe that the best way to learn a language is to speak it in real life. The Dutch Language Cafe provides you a safe space to do just that. We organize multiple events every week where we do fun activities while speaking Dutch. There are always plenty of Dutch natives around to help and all activities are guided by an experienced language coach. Everything is in a relaxed, informal and friendly way.
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!

All levels of Dutch speakers are welcome, even beginners. Mistakes don’t matter, we are all there to learn. Your Dutch will improve rapidly, you will gain a lot of confidence and will meet new people and have fun along the way!
Also for Dutch natives!
Dutch Natives are very welcome at the Dutch Language Café. If you are looking for ways to meet new and interesting people, the language café is the place to be. You will get to know more about other cultures and you will learn valuable skills in language teaching. This is your chance to help others learn Dutch and feel welcome in The Netherlands!

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!
