Fast-paced and friendly language learning at UvA Talen


Are you based in Amsterdam and want to improve your language skills?

UvA Talen offers a wide range of fast-paced and lively courses in Dutch, English and nine other languages, ranging from elementary to advanced levels!

Group courses

UvA Talen offers group language courses for Dutch, English, Spanish, French, Italian, German, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese, Swedish and Arabic

In these classes students hone their listening, speaking, reading, writing and grammar skills, and systematically and rapidly build up vocabulary.

The courses use high-quality, accredited teaching methods that have proven successful through many years of use and are supplemented with carefully selected and up-to-date resources and materials.

Group courses for all languages (all levels) are starting this January, with daytime and evening classes available. Also, in response to growing demand, UvA Talen's English and Dutch courses now start every four weeks.

Check language levels and starting dates, or you can enrol directly in a course!

UvA Talen inTense programme

In addition to regular language courses, UvA Talen offers tailor-made courses designed to suit specific needs and individual schedules.

The inTense programme uses the full immersion principle for people who need to improve their language skills quickly and effectively.

Working one-on-one or in very small groups, participants are immersed in an intensive, dynamic programme that combines classroom activities in Amsterdam with study-related excursions and social experiences.

This enables participants to reach a high working level in a very short time. For more information visit UvA Talen inTense.
