Are you moving to the Netherlands and do you want to learn the basics of Dutch? Or have you been here for a while and are struggling to find the time to visit a language school? The Language Academy has the perfect solution: comprehensive online courses to complete at your own pace, wherever you are and whenever you want. Take on a new challenge and learn Dutch with The Language Academy.
Get to know Amsterdam
The online lessons are constructed around four young professionals living in Amsterdam. You encounter them 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 bio's on Facebook.
All online courses at The Language Academy are developed by language experts at UvA Talen, the academic language centre at the University of Amsterdam. As such, the online courses are comprehensive, including modules in speaking, listening, reading and writing, and combine academic quality with a quick learning curve.
Each course is geared towards results and ends with a final exercise to test your skills. If you complete a course, you will even receive a certificate!
Easy to use and fun for 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. You can take a look at some of the Dutch pronunciation videos on YouTube.
Every online course has a free trial, which contains the complete first lesson of the course. You can take the free trial without signing up to see if the programme suits you and whether the level is right for you. Try the free demo now.
