cost efficient private Dutch coursesHow to choose between a residential and an on line Dutch crash course?

Choosing a one to one intensive 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.

Residential crash courses are full immersion. For the best possible result organize you don't have to bother about other things while studying Dutch. That's why we call our residentials a learning Dutch 'retreat' too.
Standard program residential is 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. More Dutch lessons a day may be too intensive. Residential one to one full immersion Dutch courses already 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.

Our most efficient online courses of course don't have room and board costs. There great advantage is you can spread your 15, 21 or 26 two-lessons modules according what fits you most. For an optimal result count at least 1 additional hour for self-study per module.
You could also book more modules to include more conversations to improve your Dutch conversation skills. This might be especially useful if you're living abroad with little opportunity for talks in Dutch. 

If you prefer weekend courses: 1 or 2 weekends may suffice to brush up your proficiency. Starting from scratch you'll probably need 3 or weekends for 15 modules or better 4 weekends and 21 modules, to get up to proficiency level A2. Much depends on how used you are to learn foreign languages.
