After a number of months of remote teaching, we have reviewed the new COVID-19 guidelines and the preference of our students. Following a successful pilot, we have decided to launch a new Hybrid course format.  From September 2020 you can select Remote, Hybrid or Face-to-Face formats, depending on the course you want to register for.

The Hybrid course format efficiently combines Face-to-face and Remote teaching with flexibility for you. For Hybrid and Face-to-Face courses, all COVID-19 sector-guidelines will be fully adhered to. The maximum number of students for all 3 course types remains 8 . We will also continue our lenient opt-out policy, so you can respond to changing circumstances.

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.
