One-to-one General/Business

Dutch Course in Southampton

It doesn't matter if you want to learn Dutch for business or pleasure - our customised language courses will help you get where you want to be.

General Dutch courses will let you engage in polite and interesting conversations with native Dutch speakers. They are ideal for preparing you for short visits to countries where Dutch is spoken. 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.


Courses are, however, tailor-made - you cover in your lessons what you need to cover. Most students taking a Business Dutch course will gain telephone and email expertise, as well as general conversation skills. 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.


There are many reasons for choosing one of our Business courses. You might work in import-export, for example, or be sizing up the possibility of going abroad to further your career. General courses in Dutch suit those hoping to emigrate to foreign shores, people with a view to travel to countries where Dutch is the vernacular tongue, those with a keen interest in Dutch culture and language, and people with foreign spouses.


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.
