From September we will offer this course as a face to face course at our Kickstart School location in The Hague due to demand from our students. If you would rather do a remote course, we recommend considering joining one of our remote Starterpack courses.
In order to keep everybody safe, do not come to our school if you have any symptoms or have had a chance of exposure to Covid.
Are you an au pair or do you have an au pair who needs to speak some basic Dutch? This Dutch course for beginners has been specifically developed to help au pairs to quickly learn essential Dutch phrases to facilitate communication with children, whilst making new friends. We take a communicative approach to teaching so you or your au pair will be speaking Dutch from their first lesson. Please be aware that in the face to face courses there is no option of joining remotely. If you have to miss the class due to sickness or other reasons, you can catch up in self-study or we can offer you a catch up lesson at a reduced price.
The following topics will be covered during your course:
By the end of the course you will be able to:
€320 (including all course materials); details of host family must be provided.
A folder specifically designed for the course will be provided, free of charge.
N.B 1. We recommend German and South African (Afrikaans-speaking) au pairs to begin with a higher-level Dutch course. After completing some self-study materials, South African au pairs may begin with Stepping Stone I and German au pairs may begin with Stepping Stone II. Please contact us for advice.
N.B. 2 Some knowledge of English is required to take this course. A minimum of four students is required for a course to begin.
