Dutch private and small group courses

Do group lessons with fixed times not fit into your schedule? Maybe you don't know whether you can commit to a whole course or perhaps you have a specific deadline to meet? Then a more flexible schedule of private lessons would be a perfect solution for you. In a private course you can determine the lesson times, the pace and the content of the course yourself.

Ask us anything 

At Kickstart School:

  • Our private courses are offered at all language levels and offer not only lessons on Dutch language, but also on Dutch culture.
  • Our teachers are all native speakers and they will motivate you to make the most of your lesson time. 
  • You will also have the support of a reliable, international administrative team to make sure the course runs as smoothly as possible.

After an extensive intake interview and level test, Kickstart School develops a highly individualized programme that focuses on your learning objectives, while taking your schedule and learning style into account. It is important that you provide feedback during the course so that adjustments can be made where necessary. You will have the opportunity to bring your own material to make the course as relevant and personal as possible.

The private lessons are taught in quiet, modern classrooms at a central location in The Hague, in the beautiful Archipel area close to Centraal Station or at a location of your preference. We offer morning, afternoon, evening and weekend lessons, and we are happy to adjust your lesson timetable (with proper notice, of course).
