No more “smoesjes”: Learn Dutch with Centre Français-Néerlandais


Why would you learn Dutch when it is possible to communicate with (almost) everyone in English here in the Netherlands? Why try to speak Dutch when no one seems to be patient enough to try to understand you? Well, one good reason to learn Dutch is that multilingualism offers many obvious benefits beside the social benefit of being able to speak to many people, says Centre Français-Néerlandais.

Lifelong benefits

When you learn another language, you train your brain to be sharper and get even more cognitive skills. This is something you can benefit from throughout your life, at work, during your hobbies and at home. Even when you choose to move on to another country after a few years, you can still use those benefits; learning a new language will be much easier.

Total immersion

When you’re learning a new language, your brain first tries to get you back to your mother tongue (or the language you’re most comfortable with) because it’s an easier way to communicate. Therefore, you need to keep your inner voice away and dive fully into the new language you’ve chosen.

This is why Centre Français-Néerlandais is convinced that learning a new language needs immersion and why all of the centre’s courses are 100 percent Dutch spoken. Soon you’ll find yourself speaking Dutch with other students in everyday situations. This will activate the skills you already possess and will help you get more confident in your Dutch-speaking abilities.

Experienced teachers

All of Centre Français-Néerlandais’ teachers are experienced Dutch natives who understand the specific needs and difficulties of expats. They are also able to help you find around local Dutch culture.
