In order to allow as large a group of students as possible to participate in Kickstart language classes during the summer months, and in compliance with COVID-19 guidelines, we have decided not to resume face-to-face language classes at our Kickstart School location in The Hague until September 2021. From September we will continue to offer our popular online remote language classes as well as face to face courses at our Kickstart School location in The Hague.
Are you just at the start of your Dutch language journey? Do you want to see rapid improvement? Kickstart School’s beginner’s course focuses on learning by doing to provide you with the tools to cope with everyday situations. We take a communicative approach to teaching so you will be speaking Dutch from your first lesson.
We have many different options for the Starterpack Course for Beginners. We have options for people who want to have lessons once a week, twice a week, in the morning or in the evening. For people who cannot come on a weekday due to work, we have weekend courses. We also offer intensive courses such as a one week course and the 2 week Double Your Dutch intensive course that combines Starterpack and Stepping Stone I. 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.
Topics covered in the course include:
By the end of the course you will be able to:

N.B. 1 We recommend German and South African (Afrikaans-speaking) students to begin with a higher-level Dutch course. After completing some self-study materials, South African students may begin with Stepping Stone I and German students may begin with Stepping Stone II. Please refer to the language level tab or contact us for more information.
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.
