One-to-one General/Business

Dutch Course in Southampton

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. A Business course will focus on business protocol in Dutch, and later on reading and writing will become more important.


The flexible nature of our courses means that you can choose what you want to be taught. This means that you aren't restricted simply to Business or General courses but can go for something which will genuinely give you what you need. In the same way, those taking a General course who may need more knowledge of a certain aspect of Dutch need only request it from their teacher.


Typical learners who choose our Business courses are import/export professionals, agents for multi-national companies, and those involved with foreign governments and universities. Clients of our General Dutch courses include people moving abroad, those entering a Dutch family through marriage, those studying for a Dutch exam, as well as those who are simply passionate about Dutch language and culture.


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.
