Dutch Course in Glasgow
The fact that our language courses are tailor made for the students means that it doesn't matter what your reasons for learning Dutch are.
A General course in Dutch will grant you 'Survival Dutch' - enough under your belt to furnish you with a working knowledge for the purpose of visiting the country, allowing you to introduce yourself and engage in conversation with native speakers. Business courses will centre more on formal, business communication, and focus more on reading and writing skills as you advance further.
The exact syllabus is not determined simply in terms of 'General' or 'Business' - the course is tailor-made to your needs. If, as a Business student, you need extra focus on telephone or email communication, or vocabulary from a specific field of business, you only need mention this to your tutor. A good example of how a General course can be adapted to personal needs might be for a client who intends to buy a property overseas and wants to learn all the words which they can on the subject.
Lots of different types of students choose our Business classes. A good example comes from the range of people who work for multinational firms and need to be able to other languages such as Dutch from time to time. There are many different types of people who could benefit from one of our General Dutch courses; someone moving abroad, a person who travels widely or someone who simply wants an absorbing hobby.
You have the option to participate in a free language consultation before your course begins. This short consultation, usually over the phone, will reveal the work situations you will find yourself in and the terminology you will need to know in order for us to better design your course. This information, in addition to details regarding your preferred methods of learning, will be used to understand your specific requirements, work demands, and the language goals you wish to achieve from your course.

Info about Dutch
Spoken by over 30 million people around the word, the Dutch language is the native tongue of the Netherlands and is spoken in many other countries throughout Europe and parts of Africa (being the parent language of Afrikaans). Dutch grammar is similar to German, but made easier by the relative lack of morphology (that is, words changing form depending on the role they are playing in a sentence). This gives it an English feel, though the vocabulary features plenty of those lovely lengthy compound words that generally characterise Germanic languages.
Dutch is not traditionally a popular language for non-native speakers to learn, mainly due to the fact that its use is not widespread, and most Dutch speakers are generally proficient in other European languages. However, the number of non-native speakers has surged in recent years.

Now that I'm a bit older, I have a bit more time on my hands. I started Italian cooking classes, and loved them so much that I thought I would learn a bit of the language. Well, I never thought someone my age could pick it up so quickly, but Patrizia is so patient and helpful. Now I'm even thinking about taking a holiday to Napoli!
