Private courses

Do you want to learn to communicate well in Dutch quickly? Call your friends and book a Private course together!

  1. One-to-one course (1 person = only you)
  2. Duo-course (2 persons = you + your partner)
  3. Triple-course (3 persons = you + your partner + your friend)
  4. Quattro-course (4 persons = you + your partner + 2 friends)

In an intensive, Dutch private course at Dutch Academy Eindhoven, you learn Dutch language quickly and thoroughly. In the many private lessons with one of our Dutch teachers, you work on communicating in Dutch in practical situations. The teacher’s full attention is dedicated only to you (or your group). You can focus on chosen language areas and learn at your own pace. This is a good option for those who work flexible hours, so their Dutch classes need to be arranged at different times. The full immersion you experience during your intensive training produces exceptional results. We offer good quality at a very reasonable cost. Lessons will take place at your place in Eindhoven.

Personalised Dutch tuition allows you to concentrate on language areas of specific interest. The teacher’s full attention is dedicated only to you (or your group). Private Dutch lessons may be combined with our group Dutch courses if you want to make even better progress.

Teaching programme of your personal Dutch course will be fully adapted to your needs. For example, your lessons may include:

  1. Exam preparation (Civic Integration Exam – Inburgeringsexamen)
  2. Developing specific skills or language areas, e.g. grammar, vocabulary, writing or listening skills, conversation
  3. Professional language e.g. business Dutch
  4. Job interview preparation
  5. Any other language needs

Online learning
If you book our Dutch private course we offer you online learning for free.

Certificate
You will receive your certificate of Dutch Academy Eindhoven upon completion of your course.

Times and dates
Times of private Dutch lessons can be discussed and suited to your requirements. This is a good solution for busy people with flexible working hours.
Available times: from 9.00 to 21.00, 7 days a week from Monday to Sunday. To check hours currently available, please contact us.

Post-course learning
You learn a great deal in a short amount of time in our Dutch private course. Afterwards, it is essential to maintain your skills, and of course the best way to do so is to use the language often. We also offer the opportunity to continue practising the language through online learning and Skype lessons.

Do you want to learn to communicate well in Dutch quickly?

Your personal online Dutch teacher can guide you to better Dutch, whether you want to improve your general skills, prepare for Dutch examinations or just to improve your speaking or writing skills. Our interactive live classes are equipped to help you improve your Dutch quickly and in a fun way. You can do your lesson in the comfort of your own home, in your own office, in front of your own computer but with a real, live teacher – seven days a week!

Pronunciation and grammar will always have a central role in your lessons, as it is essential to learning Dutch. What topics we focus on will depend on the reason why you are learning Dutch and what you want to get out of the course. If you are a beginner, the first lessons will focus on pronunciation primarily, however after that, we will also focus on Dutch grammar, reading & writing in Dutch and Dutch vocabulary.

What our students say

Prima! Definitely, it is the best Dutch course in Eindhoven. For me, only this one works. Finished A1 Step 1 and I am going to continue with next Step 2. Highly recommended!

Misha (Ukraine), TU/e

Very dynamic classes, with a lot of interaction between colleagues and teacher, and with diverse materials (digital and print formats). I really enjoyed it and I totally recommend it!

Ana (Switzerland), Philips

I completed course A1 Step 1. I found the class to be beneficial and helpful in the improvement of the Dutch language. The classes were engaging, entertaining, and had an interesting yet effective system for the Huiswerk (homework), using a mix of online sources and the textbook. I found having two lecturers to be an additional benefit as well.

Great course. It goes in depth of Dutch grammar. If you do your homework on regular basis you can build reasonable vocabulary. Teachers are very patient and supportive.

by Gokhun Selcuk on Dutch Academy Eindhoven
Company: aselsan
Job: Engineer
Dutch level: Beginner

The course is fast and effective. Because of intensive course load, emphasis is given on grammar. Still you create sufficient vocabulary if you attend the lectures and do homework. The lessons are quite interactive and you are really encouraged to speak.

Company: NXP
Job: Engineer
Dutch level: B1

I highly recommend this course.

Teaching approach is very structured and enjoyable which makes learning Dutch fun and easier than it is. I especially find it very useful to work with "formulated" way for Dutch grammar, helped me a lot!
