Intensive Dutch Courses


Join us for TaalBoost’s Intensive Dutch language course and level up your Dutch to A1 (LEVEL 1) or A2 (LEVEL 2) in just 6 days!

Some of the advantages of an intensive course with TaalBoost are:

  • You will boost your Dutch for a whole level in just one week (30 lesson hours).

  • You will start using Dutch from the first lesson and will immediatelly notice progress.

  • You will have lessons not with one, but two committed Dutch language teachers, so you can get used to hearing and understanding different pronunciations and benefit from two complementing teaching approaches.

  • You will work in small groups, so the lessons are dynamic and fun, and there is plenty of space for individual feedback.

The intensive courses take place one time per month during 6 days, Monday to Friday 09:00-14:30 and Saturday 10:00-15:30 (6 days of 5 lesson hours each - in total 30 lesson hours)

Marnixstraat 80, 1015 VX Amsterdam

How you learn
Since communication is the main goal, you will work in pairs or groups to practise speaking and listening through various engaging and fun exercises. After each lesson, the teacher will share the material you should prepare for the following lesson. Home study of approx. 3-5 hours per day is essential in order to achieve the planned level at the end of the course.

Content of the course
More information at the content of the courses can be found at the LEVEL 1 and LEVEL 2 pages.
