Organized by members for members

Our community is also a place where you can develop your passions by becoming active in the community! Most of our activities are actually organized by members themselves!

For example, do you like pottery? We can organize a pottery workshop together for all the members! Or, are you into ice-skating? Let’s organize a trip to the ice-skating hall! Anything is possible!

Becoming active is a good way to make new connections, develop new skills, and do things related to your interests!

Meet our members

The DLC is truly a safe place to meet amazing new people! Everyone is very friendly & patient and the cafe has a cosy atmosphere as well. Improving my Dutch has never been so easy and entertaining: Even after the first activity, I have felt much more confident speaking Dutch. I wish I have explored DLC years ago! If you are new to The Hague, would like to improve you Dutch, or simply just want to meet some new people, the DLC is probably the best place to go!

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!

Ik kwam naar DLC omdat ik het leuk vond om mensen te helpen met Nederlands. Maar ik merkte al snel dat DLC veel meer is dan dat! Ik heb in korte tijd veel internationale vrienden gemaakt en super veel lol gehad! Hoogtepunten voor mij waren kanovaren, tennissen en de vele barbecues en feestjes! Wat ik mooi vind is dat ik als Nederlander veel heb kunnen leren van de niet-Nederlanders! Iedereen die nieuw is in Den Haag, leuk vindt om mensen te ontmoeten en en openstaat voor nieuwe activiteiten kan ik DLC aanraden!
