About Kickstart School

Since opening in 2001, Kickstart School has firmly established itself in The Hague. Kickstart offers English and Dutch courses for beginners, intermediate and advanced students. The friendly teaching environment encourages students’ progression through any level. The emphasis is on speaking and listening, and the limited class sizes ensure everyone has an opportunity to practice.

The focus on functional language use will enable you to communicate in any situation - from the supermarket to a business meeting. In 2012, Kickstart School moved to a beautiful new location in the Archipel neighbourhood. Located close to the centre of The Hague, Kickstart is connected directly to The Hague Central Station and Scheveningen.
