All year round I offer English and Dutch language courses.
For the Dutch group courses the year is divided into 4 periods.
Group courses at Dutch & Such are always small. There is a maximum of 8 students per group for courses at the Dutch & Such location on the Weesperstraat. For in-company courses the maximum is 10 students per group. Many of my competitors run courses with up 20 students per group. I know from experience, both as a student and as a teacher, that big groups slow down the learning.
Having small groups ensures maximum learning. The group is small enough for you to get plenty of personal attention while it is still big enough for a dynamic interaction with the other students in class. Having small groups simply means you get big results.
Private courses are much easier to fit in, so they run all year round. These 1-2-1 lessons can be planned according to mutual schedules. You could start with a series of private lessons any time in the year. Private lessons can only be planned on weekdays during office hours.
In-company courses, both for groups and individuals, can be planned on weekdays during office hours. Again this type of course can be scheduled all year round. The evenings at Dutch & Such are devoted primarily to group courses. I do not teach during the weekends.
When looking for employment, language skills are often a huge asset. If you have a certificate showing that you have completed a particular Dutch or English language course, it can really help build your CV. Sometimes Dutch organisations such as the IND need to see a Dutch language certificate, for instance if you seek naturalisation or a permanent residency in the Netherlands. At the end of a language course I can offer you a certificate upon request.
Dutch & Such is CRKBO certified, which means my language courses are VAT free.
