Bringing language to life – UvA Talen inTense!

In addition to the regular training programme, UvA Talen organises tailor-made courses designed to suit your specific needs - and schedule! The UvA Talen inTense programme, for example, offers "full immersion" courses that are very popular with people who wish to improve their language skills quickly.

In these highly intensive programmes, you’ll learn a language in a dynamic, practical and playful way. From breakfast until the end of the day's programme, you are effortlessly immersed in the language that you wish to learn. In this way, you can reach a high level in a short time and develop thorough, practical skills in your chosen language.

Of course you don't spend the whole day in the classroom. Each day, the schedule includes one or more study-related excursions to the many wonderful attractions that the lively city of Amsterdam has to offer!
