One-to-one General/Business

Dutch Course in Glasgow

It's no problem if you need to take Dutch lessons specifically for personal use or to help with your career - our trainers mould the lesson plan to your precise needs.

A General Dutch course will concentrate on providing you with the knowledge you need in order for your trips abroad to be more interesting. You will no longer need to shy away from conversations with the locals. On the other hand, the Business Dutch lessons offered by us are more useful for anyone who needs to be able to speak Dutch for work purposes. It could be the boost your career needs.


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. While a General course will tend to concentrate on the basics of the language you can ask for it to include whatever you feel will be important to your future plans.


While it is impossible to describe the characteristics of the average language student it is clear that many who choose to take Business courses work in import-export or in companies with overseas headquarters or branches. General courses cater mostly to those who wish to learn Dutch for short trips to (or through) a country where it is widely spoken; as well as those who wish to pass a specific Dutch exam, people who want to buy a home abroad, and people marrying into a Dutch family.


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.
