There will be a maximum of 9 students per class. The students are divided into groups according to their level so that they can benefit from the effective teaching method. Since the courses are based on an innovative method aiming at learning the language through dialogue. This system is called « QRI » (Question-Answer-Intonation) and consists in reproducing phonetic sounds accurately, which allows for an immediate reinforcement of the acquired knowledge. The participants are divided into three groups: Pre-teens (9-12 years), Teens (13-15 years) and Seniors (16-17 years) and therefore benefit from courses specially adapted to their age range. Supervised by competent and motivated teachers, the young students learn Dutch with the help of « fun » elements and activities communication. The verbo-tonal interaction is considered as an efficient way of learning the language. For Teens and Seniors programmes, it is possible to complete the course with private lessons (2 to 8 hours per week). Efficient and fun classes: success guaranteed!

Do you think you've made progress?
« Oui étant donné que je partais de 0. Par contre, ce fût très compliqué car j'étais le seul "véritable" débutant. Les 4 autres personnes de mon groupe avaient déjà eu des cours de néerlandais. C'est mon seul regret. Ma prof était vraiment très très bien, elle était hyper adéquate. »
School highlights
« L'enseignante et le fait que les différents groupes de langues soient bien séparés, ce qui permettaient une immersion totale. La nourriture était très bonne également.J'ai aussi bcp apprécié être seul dans ma chambre, pour moi, c'est un point essentiel. »
Top tips
« Pour un débutant, c'est vraiment très compliqué de se retrouver dans un groupe avec des personnes qui ont déjà 1 an ou 2 de cours derrière eux. J'avais même dans mon groupe un élève qui était en immersion depuis 1 année scolaire ?!?! »
