Ready to get started?
Step 1

Personalized intake

The intake is about understanding your situation and aligning the Dutch lessons to your specific language goals. We’ll discuss your reason for learning Dutch, your current level, your ideal lesson times/days, and preferences for the teacher, homework and lesson content.  The intake can be completed online or over the phone. Lastly, we’ll ask for a €15 advance payment for your trial lesson.

Step 2

Finding your Dutch teacher


The right guidance makes a big difference, so we take the time required to ensure a good match. 

Within days of your intake, we'll introduce you to a Dutch tutor who aligns with your learning goals, current language level, and preferences. Ensuring you get the best Dutch course for your situation. 

The tutor will reach out to you through phone, text or email to plan your trial lesson with you directly.

Step 3

Trial lesson

This one hour lesson is a no-commitment opportunity for you to meet your tutor and try things out. You can ask questions, take your first steps in learning Dutch and determine if our lessons are the right fit for you. If you feel it's not a perfect fit, we offer a second trial lesson with a different tutor for free, to ensure your Dutch learning journey starts right.

Step 4

Picking a lesson package

Once you’re satisfied with your tutor, choose how many lesson hours you’d like to start with: 10, 20, or 40 hours. The more hours you buy, the more you save! Opt for an online Dutch course or lessons with a buddy for even better rates. 

Lesson packages are billed in advance and can be paid as a single payment or in 2-3 installments.  We can also direct the invoice to your organization if your employer is paying for your Dutch training.

Step 5

Start mastering Dutch

As soon as we’ve received your first payment, you’re ready to start your lessons and become fluent in Dutch. You’ll also get access to our unique lesson materials. If life gets busy, don’t stress! You can reschedule up to 48 hours in advance without any fees. 

As you reach your first milestones, we’re here to review your progress and strategize the next steps. Ensuring you're on track and re-aligning lessons if needed. Need more lesson hours? You can add as many as you’d like.
