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 one week courses in the summer holidays and the 2 week Double Your Dutch intensive course that combines Starterpack and Stepping Stone I.
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.
For information about follow-on courses please see below.
The teacher didn't had too much patience, and it makes the atmosphere not so good sometimes, if we are here is to learn and as the teacher makes some students feel bad in front of others it makes that we don't have then willing to continue learning as the way of teaching makes to be disappointment instead of encourage
Everything was organized. The teacher was really great and very helpful. The speed of the course was just the necessary; not too slow and not too fast with some useful review sessions.
It was just the right combination of speaking and reading basic Dutch to get started.
Very enjoyable lessons giving basic Dutch. I would recommend some vocab testing as otherwise we students get lazy!!
comfortable and convenient facilities
I took the starter pack course for Dutch in a semi-intensive peace. Sometimes it felt too much info to process in a couple of days but all the material and the extra activities from KickStartNet are a great addition to the book.
The teacher was excellent and made the classes easy to digest. It also answered all our questions in English what made some concepts easier to understand.
I think the course is a bit short for all the concepts they expect us to learn, so I will have to keep practicing after the course to understand everything.
