Various needs can motivate people to learn a language. You may want to learn Dutch or improve your English skills if, for example, you'd like to be able to communicate better with your Dutch or English colleagues. Or you may want to start a new career in teaching English.
These are just a few of the many reasons you may wish to take a course at The BSN Language Centre in The Hague.
For employees new to the Netherlands, learning some Dutch is essential.
For companies that want to make a solid investment in their employees, The BSN Language Centre offers an In Company Dutch course.
For individuals, the Language Centre offers a wide variety of Dutch courses, from Beginners to the NT2 exam/advanced level.
English at Work
English is becoming an important language in the Dutch workspace - it's the language of international business and has, therefore, become increasingly important.
"In countries where English is not a native or official language, over two-thirds of employers say that English is important for their business," according to a research paper of Cambridge English.
The same report stated that there was much to gain in this area as there is also a 40 percent skill gap between the actual skills of employees and the required English language skills.
This is where The BSN Language Centre steps into the picture! They offer a variety of English courses focused on the business environment:
