Learn Dutch online
Far far away, beyond the Atlantic ocean, far from the USA. We speak a cool language that we want to share with you, online, every day.
Build your confidence, one course at the time
Whether you start out with the basics or want to advance your reading, writing, listening and speaking skills, you are at the right place to learn Dutch with confidence.
Online Dutch courses
We offer the following Dutch courses and lessons: Basic Dutch, Intermediate Dutch, Advanced Dutch, & Dutch Conversation course, and Private Dutch Lessons. They are all taught by qualified teachers who are native speakers and have a passion for teaching Dutch as a foreign language. Besides working on your Dutch skills, you will explore Dutch and Flemish culture as well.
Learn to have small talks in Dutch. This course is for you if you didn't take prior Dutch courses, nor have other experience with the Dutch language.
Learn to have simple conversations in Dutch. This course is for you if you already took a basic Dutch course or acquired sufficient knowledge to have simple conversations in Dutch.
Learn to have more complex conversations in Dutch. This course is for you if you are comfortable expressing yourself and looking to expand your knowledge by learning more complex language constructs.
Alongside a Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced Dutch course, you can improve your Dutch speaking skills. This course is offered at all levels and is for you if you want to increase your confidence in speaking Dutch.
Private Dutch Lessons
Learn Dutch one-on-one with a tutor. These lessons are for you if you want to reach a specific learning goal whether it is on A1, A2, or B1 level.
At the end of each trimester, you will have deepened your Dutch language skills and, depending on progress, will be ready to advance to the next level. Your teacher will evaluate this together with you.
If desired, you can work towards obtaining a Certificate of Dutch as a Foreign Language (CnaVT), A2 Maatschappelijk informeel. The CNaVT certifies language proficiency of Dutch as a foreign language worldwide, using task based and domain specific exams related to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR). Please let us know if this is your goal.
What our students say
De Brug offers small class sizes with a native speaker that covers all aspects of learning Dutch. I found it very helpful!
The teachers are native speakers and highly professional. They take the time to answer questions thoroughly and are very patient. Class sizes are small. The homework required did not take that much time but it does take work. The cost was reasonable. I plan to take more classes from them.
Accredited teaching method
The accredited teaching method we use is the digital version of Contact! nieuw. It is developed by Radboud in’to Languages, the center of expertise for language and communication of Radboud University Nijmegen.
The Dutch courses take place on zoom and will be offered per trimester. The fall trimester starts in the September, the winter trimester in January, and the spring trimester in March. Each trimester consists of 10 lessons with the Basic, Intermediate, or Advance course. In addition, you can choose to combine one of the three courses with a Dutch Conversation course that runs alongside them. The schedule of the Private Dutch Lessons is agreed with your tutor on a flexible basis. For more information about the class schedule,please click here.
