Dutch Programs for Beginners - Small group Dutch 8 weeks (evening) - Intensive 2 week training (day-time) - Spring and summer courses 3 weeks (day-time) - Individual programs (day-evening)
Speaking In all the beginners programs you will be stimulated to speak Dutch right from the start. You are trained to communicate in a flexible way. Two way active communication in which you are able to make requests, to give your opinion, show interest, to tell something about yourself and your work or study, to give praise and so on. Working in a small group ensures that you will be able to practice your Dutch pronunciation.
The right word order Next to the emphasis on lively conversation we will "initiate" you in the fundamentals of Dutch grammar. You will actually find the basics of Dutch grammar much easier than is widely rumoured. In the beginners programs only those parts of the grammar will be highlighted that are essential for getting the word order and usage of the Dutch verbs right.
Basic writing You will learn to to write a short e-mail in Dutch; a postcard; a short text and to fill in a form.
Intensive The pace of the beginners course will be high. You will make amazing progess if you have the time and discipline to make all the study tasks. If you study a minimum of 4 hours a week ( home work excercises) you will be able to give a short presentation in Dutch of your work or interest. Your presentation in Dutch is the assignment for the final lesson of the 8 week course. If you want to achieve much more in a shorter span of time there is the option of the individual intensive program of 2 weeks or the tailor-made program
Learn Dutch Intermediate Level After successfully completing the basic course you are able to understand quite some Dutch. You are familiar with everyday expressions and you are capable of a rudimentary conversation. The Dutch vocabulary will be around 700 / 800 words and you understand and can apply the basics of the Dutch grammar. Your proficiency level will be in the region of A-2 level. This will qualify you for admission to an intermediate course 1.
Students who did not attend a beginners course Dutch at ITHA are welcome. To fit you in the right group level we ask you to do a short proficiency test.
Small groups in our language institute At ITHA you always learn Dutch in a small group. This will assure that you get more than sufficient attention of the teacher. In the intermediate Dutch course 1 and 2 you try to speak as much as possible. There are tasks to prepare at home and in the lesson you activate the vocabulary. After the Dutch lesson you can expect about 3 to 4 hours in preparation to your next lesson.
ONE-TO-ONE Student -Teacher There are many good reasons for choosing a course on a one-to-one basis, such as: - The program is completely fitted to your learning needs and your style of learning. - Full attention for you alone. In a group you will have to share your time with others. - You are free to choose the schedule. This can be intensive high speed or a schedule that is compatible with your professional obligations. - The costs will be higher, but efficiency wise it is actually a good option.

The classrooms are located on the Elandsgracht, close to the Westerkerk and the Amsterdam Woonbootmuseum. We offer group, individual, in-company and thematic Dutch language courses.
Language courses at Koentact 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.

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."
