One-to-one General/Business

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.

A General course in Dutch will leave you with the skills to go abroad and speak to the locals with confidence A Business course will focus on business protocol in Dutch, and later on reading and writing will become more important.


Most students will enjoy a course which gives them a wide mix of skills. For example, a Business course in Dutch will also leave you well prepared for less formal use of the language as well. Equally, a General course will cover the fundamentals, but further focus in any particular area can easily be arranged with your 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. 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.
