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... 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 organises events outside the classroom.
