Easy to use and fun for everyone
While The Language Academy's online courses maintain their academic quality at all times, they are also accessible to everyone.
The online platform is easy to navigate, and the lessons are devised to be fun and interactive. Each language course contains ten lessons with conversations, exercises and videos surrounding a theme, for example, eating out, grocery shopping, work socials or family gatherings. This allows you to learn sentences and idioms you can immediately put into practice. Take a look at some Dutch pronunciation videos on YouTube.
Get to know Amsterdam
The online lessons are constructed around four young professionals living in Amsterdam. You encounter these young professionals in all sorts of everyday situations: Anna and Jan will give you a peek into their relationship, while Lena shows you what it’s like to work at the Zuidas. Meanwhile, Maria will take you along in her life as a busy mother of two young children. Curious about the characters? Read their bios on Facebook.
