About Us:

At Koentact, language courses consist of small groups, practically oriented lessons, linguistic exchange / language ‘dating’ (a language exchange with a Dutch person learning your language) and interactive learning via the internet. Our Dutch language courses are adapted to the needs and requirements of the student. All our courses focus on daily (practical) communication and culture.

All our teachers are native speakers of Dutch, fluent in your native language, highly experienced and well educated individuals. They are enthusiastic and flexible in their teaching approach abd provide a friendly learning enviroment for all students. We provide language experts who are professional and qualified translators. They can translate from all languages to all other languages in different domains (a.o. legal, financial, scientific).

Dutch Language Courses:

Dutch language courses for all levels from beginner's to advanced are taught through our uniquely developed language method in which practical interaction is essential. In contrast to many other language schools, we try to place our students in groups with similar language backgrounds. This way the teacher can explain difficult grammatical issues in the native language of the student, and of course the teacher mainly talks in Dutch. Also, we organise language exchanges with a Dutch person learning your language.

- Private, individual one-to-one Dutch language courses
- Dutch language group courses
- Thematic Dutch language and culture courses
- Dutch language conversation course for advanced leaners of Dutch
- Dutch language course for businesses

* We use the CEFRL 'Common European Framework of Reference for Languages.

Additionally:  French language courses and Italian language courses

Student Testimonials:

"Learning Dutch in the Netherlands is a real challenge, especially since the Dutch speak perfect English. But I was up for the challenge. I ended up in a nice group of enthusiastic students. The teacher was young, dynamic, friendly and knew how to motivate us. He also took us several times to real practical situations where we had to apply everything we had learned. "  - Brigitte, Dutch student.

"Our teacher Thomas was always all smiles, enthusiastic about teaching us and thoroughly enjoyed what he was doing. His enthusiasm made class fun and gave me further motivation to learn Dutch outside of the classroom." - T. Morris, Delta Airlines, Dutch student.

"The opportunity to do a language exchange with Dutch people was an enriching experience. It allowed you to talk to other students, instead of just your teacher. The teacher made sure that there is always a connection with the things discussed during the course. By interacting with real Dutch people you realize that you really can talk outside the lesson. Furthermore, it is just a really fun experience. " - M. Desbois, Dutch student

Direct Dutch, The Hague
Courses / Programs
The Direct Dutch Institute, founded in 1985, is situated near the centre of The Hague, a few minutes away from Laan van NOI station. Direct Dutch provides effective courses for foreigners who wish to acquire an active command of Dutch while staying in the Netherlands.

We use the direct method, which means that we try to speak Dutch as much as possible during the lessons. (Since some aspects of the grammar will be explained in English, it is important that participants of beginners courses have a basic knowledge of English).

You might like to get to know the Dutch better, the people and their culture; perhaps you have Dutch relatives or have to live in the Netherlands for a few years; you may need Dutch for business reasons, or wish to take part in Dutch social life; or maybe you just have linguistic or historical interests, and simply like Holland, Belgium and their people. Whatever the reason, learning Dutch will make you an insider rather than an outsider in these countries.

The Hague on the North Sea coast, with a population of 0.5 million, is the third-largest city in the Netherlands after Amsterdam and Rotterdam, and is the seat of Dutch government.

Testimonial:
"As a student of Direct Dutch I feel that I have made excellent progress in my learning of the Dutch language..I’ve made many friends while attending class. I cannot wait to come back to do another session and to see all of my friends at Direct Dutch."
