The students

Minimum age
16 years

Private courses are ideal to achieve specific objectives. They are particularly suitable for professionals who need to acquire language skills specific to their fields of activity, for students who wish to prepare for an examination, and for anyone wishing to broaden their knowledge of Dutch to meet their specific needs. In your teacher’s home, you will benefit from unique learning conditions. For instance, discussions over meals or at other times will be conducted exclusively in the target language. Living with your teacher implies that every single moment will be put to good use to reach your objectives, not only during the lessons, but also whenever you are with your teacher during the day. You will experience full immersion, without a chance to speak in your mother tongue. Your teacher will be there to help you with your difficulties, at your own pace, since you will be his one and only student (unless you choose the programme for two students: see options).

Programme for two students in the teacher's home
Students who choose this programme arrive with a person of their choice. They must both be at the same language level, have the same objectives and arrive on the same dates because they will be taking lessons together. There is a 20% reduction for each student.

Special cocooning for under 18s (compulsory up to 13 years)
The teacher and their family spend a reasonable amount of time with the students, as they would with a friend staying with them, but they do not necessarily accompany the students at all times. The Cocooning option guarantees the continued presence of the teacher or of an adult member of their family in the house when the student is there.

Business language programme
This programme is adapted for professionals who need to acquire a specialised vocabulary (business, medicine, law, computing, architecture, tourism, etc.).

Students aged 15 and under must take 2-way transfers unless we are notified that they are accompanied by their parents.

Airport transfers are available from the nearest airport to the teacher’s place of residence.

Die Niederlande ist ein wunderschönes Land mit offenen, freundlichen Menschen! Ich durfte in Wassenaar wohnen, bei einer entzückenden Frau, bei der ich mich sofort zu Hause gefühlt habe. Wassenaar ist der perfekte Standort um Holland zu erkunden, nicht nur weil sehr viel (Den Haag, Scheveningen, Bushaltestelle,..) mit dem Rad erreichbar ist, sondern auch die Bahnhaltestelle nicht weit entfernt ist! Unbeschreiblich nett, organisiert und einzigartig!! Umbedingt zum weiterempfehlen! Ich möchte hier nur kurz nochmals anmerken, dass ich das Programm bei der Lehrkraft zu Hause wirklich weiterempfehlen möchte, da man so viel von der Sprache hat und viel mehr lernt als in einer Schule!!! Und außerdem möchte ich jedem, vor allem Menschen die gerne etwas von der Stadt bzw. dem Land sehen möchte, diese Gastmutter und diesen Standort empfehlen!

Do you think you've made progress?
« Ja! Ich konnte kein Wort niederländisch als ich ankam und kann jetzt sehr gut Gesprächen folgen und small talk führen! Ich bin sehr von der Sprache begeistert (und würde sie sehr gerne weiterempfehlen, da diese der Deutschen sehr ähnlich ist und somit nicht so schwer zu erlernen ist und außerdem exotisch ist) außerdem war meine Gastmutter eine sehr gute Lehrerin!! »
School highlights
« Die Freundlichkeit und Offenheit der Gastmutter, sowie das Land an sich. Ich durfte während meiner Zeit in Holland sehr viel sehen und werde definitiv wieder zurück kommen!! »
Top tips
« Ein Fahrrad organisieren (ich hatte eines bei der Gastmutter), eine OV-Karte kaufen und das Land bereisen :) »

« Je pense effectivement avoir fait des progrès en Néerlandais, en effet la difficulté majeure est la faculté de savoir comprendre et s'exprimer dans la langue. Je comprend désormais beaucoup plus et je suis capable de parler en Néerlandais lors de situation du genre, parler à table, demander des informations... »
