International Student Testimonial:

Photos of Kickstart School, The HagueI have been in the Netherlands for about six months and arrived not knowing any of the Dutch language or much about Dutch culture. Kickstart School has been the ideal place for me to learn. It is easy to get to with a tram stop outside.

Importantly, the teachers are very helpful and friendly and have always gone the "extra mile" to help me learn in a positive way. Their teaching is practical with elements that can immediately be applied to everyday living situations with neighbors, shopping, in restaurants or cafes, travel on the trains and with services such as the doctor or utility companies. Included in the lessons are cultural aspects of living in the Netherlands that make learning Dutch dynamic and fun; you learn the language and about the place and the people!

The teachers at Kickstart were genuinely pleased to teach me. They took an active interest in my progress and provided valuable customized sessions that maintained my strengths and developed my weaknesses; all in a patient fun and and friendly style. I have no hesitation in recommending Kickstart School for learning "Nederlandse taal!"

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.
