cost efficient private Dutch coursesChoosing your most efficient personalized Dutch language course depends apart from available budget on how fast you want to learn Dutch, understand and speak our language up to the level of proficiency you want.

Standard program is the residential full immersion Dutch language course, 5 days from Monday to Friday, 6 private Dutch lessons and 2 hours of extra conversation a day. It's an efficient, intensive and challenging pace to learn Dutch. If you want more learning time, prolonging with 1 or 2 weekends to get a 7 or 9 days intensive may be more efficient than more Dutch lessons a day.

If you prefer weekend courses: 1 or 2 weekends may suffice to brush up your proficiency. Starting from scratch you'll probably need 4 weekends to get up to proficiency level A2.

Residential one to one full immersion Dutch courses offer about  2 to 3 hours a day more conversation (= more informal learning opportunities, teacher and/or locals involved in social or cultural life present at all meals  + the opportunity to 'retreat' to learn Dutch. Those much more efficient extra's are included in the hotel cost.
