Dutch Course in Southampton

Once you start taking our classes you will soon begin to feel your confidence in Dutch grow. This is because they will be focussed on your requirements and expectations.

Thanks to one of our general Dutch courses you will get a lot more pleasure out of your trip to foreign countries where it is spoken. There are few things more satisfying than being able to communicate well in a second language and this is what the course offers you. Business courses are aimed at those wishing to work in the target language - so a working knowledge of etiquette in Dutch business, as well as developing proficient reading and writing skills.


It is your first session and your own requirements, however, which decide the precise content of the course. A Business course will generally include common conversational topics, as well as gaining greater fluency with writing letters and emails in Dutch, as well as using the telephone. 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.


These days there are more people than ever in need of Business level Dutch lessons. There are so many careers in which knowledge of Dutch can open up a lot of doors. General courses are not simply for those who need to reach a certain level of Dutch for an exam - they are perfect for those wishing to pack up and move abroad, those marrying a Dutch national, as well as those travelling to the country for any other reason.


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.
