Cost efficient private intensive crash courses Dutch, residential or online
Learn Dutch at home or at any other study-friendly environment for our
on line Dutch language crash courses.
Residential full immersion Dutch language 'retreat' courses
take place at Averbode abbey's guesthouse, a study-friendly
environment amid moors and woods.
Both online and residential approaches are especially designed for
the higher educated.
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
don't have to bother about other things while studying Dutch. That's
why we call our residentials a learning Dutch 'retreat'
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.
