Why Dutch Language Café?

We have an unique approach to language learning.

We don’t believe in spending hours and hours in boring classrooms studying complex grammar rules. Instead, we believe in learning in a natural way: by using it while doing fun and interesting activities.

This way, you:

  • Actually get confident in speaking
  • Learn the language as it’s really spoken
  • Connect with natives and learn the local culture
  • Make lots of new friends
  • Have way more fun!
Learning Dutch while canoeing!

In traditional language schools, you go from course to course, ending up spending a lot of time and money, and often ending up not actually being able to speak after you’re done. Our unique approach is that after our beginners course, you can just dive into the community and continue your learning from there!

You continue improving your Dutch while you do fun activities, such as board games, knitting, cooking, ice-skating, museum visits, cycling trips, together with a friendly community of natives and non-natives!

Our teaching style

We believe in making language learning fun! We:

  • Always make our classes playful & interactive
  • Focus on building confidence & having fun

At home, you study using provided study materials. During the lessons, you apply what you’ve studied at home through fun speaking activities.

I can relate with the aspects of learning a new language because I am learning the Greek language. I like to help people learn in a way that gives them positive energy, like I experience it myself. My style of teaching is calm, reassuring, and making you feel at ease! Let’s take new steps in the language learning process together!
