Dutch Course in Southampton

You might want to learn Dutch for any number of different reasons and the key thing is that we will tailor the course to these needs and give you the support you need to gain the skills you want.

General Dutch courses will ensure that you have the grammar and vocabulary needed to take a comfortable and enjoyable trip abroad in which you are able to speak to Dutch speakers without fear. 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.


Our Dutch courses would not be fixed to a specific curriculum, however. You know the specifics of what you will need from your new language, and all you need do is tell your teacher. Perhaps if you are taking a Business course, you may want to focus more on Dutch telephone or email skills, or a specific vocabulary for your line of work. In the same vein, the syllabus for General courses is not set in stone - all you need do is ask your teacher.


Our Business courses cater to a range of requirements. Many of our clients work for foreign governments and educational institutions, corporations with branches abroad, as well as those who buy and sell around the world. You might automatically think that General courses in Dutch are just for those language students who need to get ready for an exam. However, in this increasingly multi-cultural society there are many people who make friends with Dutch speakers or who have a partner who speaks the language.


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.

I had my second lesson from Midori this week and I am finding both tutor and the lessons great. I must also add that it is lovely being taught by a Japanese native.

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.
