Would you like to learn Dutch, but do you prefer to be tutored in a more private setting? Or perhaps you want to learn Dutch together with a small group of friends or colleagues? Then a private Dutch course might just be right for you!

You can choose one-on-one sessions, or lessons together with one or more friends. During one-on-one sessions (with just you and the teacher), you’ll have the undivided attention of the teacher. There will be lots of time to practise speaking Dutch and there will be enough time to zoom in on your specific linguistic challenges.

Not the only one in your social circle who wants to learn Dutch? Why not consider taking a private course together? You’ll have all the benefits of private lessons, plus you’ll save some money. Being in a course together with your friend(s) will help you to feel more relaxed. And besides this you’ll have the extra benefit of being able to practise together!

Below you can find more information about our private beginners courses: Beginners A1 – private and Beginners A2 – private. Based upon experience we created a schedule that works well for most beginning learners of Dutch. In six weeks (2 lessons of 1 hour per week) you’ll be able to cover one level. We’ll choose the days and times of the lessons based upon your preferences, and on the availability of a teacher.

We also provide private lessons on all other levels. If you would like to start above level A2, or if you would like us to create a traject to suit your specific linguistic needs, please contact us by sending an email to info@directdutch.com. Not sure what your current level is?
