Five reasons to learn Dutch during COVID-19
The language learning method used by Language Institute Regina Coeli ensures that you learn to speak a foreign language quickly and effectively. The institute's highly qualified trainers teach you the skills, vocabulary and grammar that you need for your specific situation, so you can immediately start communicating in your new language.
It seems like the world has come to a standstill, and only a vaccine can get it moving again. And as if sitting at home all day weren’t bad enough, the bad news keeps coming at you from every angle: restaurants, cafes, clubs and pubs have been shut down, there are all sorts of restrictions on the sports you can do, you can’t meet up with groups, and, to top it all off, the World Health Organisation is warning about an increase in mental health issues as a result of the lockdowns.
Did you know that language has a big effect on how we feel? Someone enthusiastically saying, “great idea!” to you feels a lot better than a lukewarm “I suppose so”. Did you also know that learning new languages can make you extremely happy? That’s because you get to learn something new. What is more, learning languages opens up new worlds for you. That is just what you need right now!
Now that the world feels like it’s frozen in time for a spell, it’s your moment to learn Dutch (or another language) because:
1. You have a better chance of staying in the Netherlands
Have you spent the past year thinking about your future in the Netherlands? If you’d like to stay for a while, it would be better if you can speak Dutch with the teachers at your child’s school, with your family doctor or with your Dutch sport buddies. The odds of finding another job if you need to also go up—not a bad idea now that unemployment is also rising in the Netherlands because of the coronavirus crisis.
2. Escape your daily routine
All the days are starting to blend together, don’t you think? A language course at Language Institute Regina Coeli is an opportunity to get away from home for a while. And how! Dine in our restaurant, meet new people, and get inspired by language trainers from other countries.
3. No mental dip for you
Learning something new is one of the best ways to prevent a dip or depression, especially now that the days are getting shorter.
4. Spend what you have wisely
At the end of each year, a part of your training budget expires. It would be a pity to miss out on it, wouldn’t it? What’s more, it’s better to follow a good Dutch course once than a course from which you learn very little ten times.
5. You now have the time
Grab the free time opportunity you have with both hands. So many things have been cancelled, and perhaps you’re even less busy than normal at work. Invest that time in your future.
So, are you ready to get started? Regina Coeli can’t wait to help you set up a personal programme! Start learning Dutch now!
