At MixTree, it’s not just about learning a language but about building a community. Fun, interactive, and inclusive English courses continue to be at the heart of MixTree’s mission. Plus, having a good command of English will help newcomers to the Netherlands integrate and enjoy their time here.

Interactive methodology

MixTree’s innovative “Activate your English” methodology is based on the flipped classroom approach, meaning classes will focus on putting the language studied at home into practice in the classroom. Studying language topics in advance helps to maximise the time students have for interactive communication activities like speaking, discussing, and role-playing in class.

Professional, experienced teachers

What is MixTree’s secret to providing outstanding English courses? Its teachers! The teaching team comprises all native or bilingual teachers and represents most of the English-speaking world. All of MixTree’s teachers have a teaching certification (such as a CELTA or TEFL qualification) and at least five years of teaching experience. What’s more, all of MixTree’s teachers have experience working in multicultural classrooms and creating a welcoming learning environment.

Dynamic materials

From March 2022, all of MixTree’s general English courses will use the English File series, which gives students a fun and interactive way of practising their English skills. Additionally, it gives students access to extra online practice and even an app to easily keep up with their English studies outside of class.

English in the city

Learning a language is about so much more than just practising in a classroom. Luckily, Amsterdam provides endless opportunities for students to practise their English in a real-world setting. Thanks to the Dutch continuously being ranked as the world’s best non-native English speakers, students have plenty of chances to speak English outside of the classroom. MixTree’s central location makes it even easier to explore the city centre.

English courses for everyone

MixTree Language’s most popular courses are their Intensive English Courses: group courses that immerse students in English over four weeks, four days a week. Students activate their grammar through a focus on speaking, making the language learnt easier to remember. With new intensive courses beginning monthly, students looking for A2, B1, or B2 level classes have plenty of opportunities to improve their English level.

In addition to intensive courses, MixTree also offers a range of morning and evening classes, English for beginners (A1 level), and business courses. Moreover, for those who prefer to stay safe at home and not commute, MixTree offers Online English courses at all levels. Students can arrange a free level check with one of the teachers to find out which course suits them best. All ML courses - both online and at the school - use Google Classroom and WhatsApp group chats to keep students and teachers connected.
