About Taalhuis Amsterdam

Taalhuis Amsterdam is a house for languages, located in the heart of Amsterdam, where you can learn and improve your Dutch and Mediterranean languages, together with a team of language lovers who have a thrill for text, literature, grammar, culture and delicious coffee. Taalhuis offers group training, private training and tailored in-company workshops, as well as various text and interpreting services.

The Taalhuis team believes that learning a language is more than just books, vocabulary and grammar. They therefore teach in small groups, with as little level difference as possible, creating a safe and “gezellige” atmosphere for all students. The classes are mostly taught in the target language with books in the target language with a communicative approach. Class time is primarily used to train your speaking skills.

Taalhuis also believes that language and culture go hand in hand, so also organizes events outside the classroom. Follow Taalhuis on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date and know more about new courses, events and the school in general!
