Do you really want to make improvements to your Dutch conversation and understanding?
Kickstart School’s Stepping Stone IV course will rapidly improve your Dutch skills.
I started a Dutch course at Kickstart School and I quickly started to use the language more often and with more confidence. The course materials were great, I found it nice that during the course we had time equally for reading, writing, and speaking. I recommend this school to everybody who is eager to learn Dutch!
I had a good experience with the course, the teacher was patient and guided through everything well. The fact that it was online was very convenient. I appreciated the fact I could do two courses back to back with the same teacher
The course was fun, a lot of speaking, a lot of homework and I feel that I have greatly improved in this course, I even feel confident enough to have whole conversations in Dutch. So thank you Paul, it was a pleasure!
Loads of exercises, speaking, writing and motivated teachers! You had always a chance to practice more and challenge your skills. Online learning environment was really helpful.
The course is fun! The teacher helps in all the aspects; reading, speaking, listening and writing. The experience during the course is not boring at all, the teacher provide different things to work on together. I learned also dutch culture during the course. I will defenetily reccommend to my friends or my fellow foreigners if they want to learn dutch better!
I am very happy with the instructor I have and also the help/ instructions that I receive from the administrative staff from Kickstart. Also, they are very student-friendly and helpful, we have opened another Stepping Stone 5 course with our instructor upon our request and I think that is amazing that they fulfill our request.
