Our part-time Dutch evening classes run from September to June at our central London Regent Street Campus, just a few minutes from Oxford Circus. They are taught by experienced language teaching professionals who are native speakers of the language or equivalent. Adult students of all ages and nationalities from a wide range of backgrounds take part-time Dutch courses with us. You can also join a Dutch evening class in January for the second semester if you already have some knowledge of Dutch.
This Dutch evening language class follows a communicative approach to language teaching. Our lessons focus on language that is required for communicating in authentic situations with an emphasis on speaking and listening. Your progress will be assessed on an ongoing basis through homework, assignments and performance in class. You will receive verbal feedback from your tutor on every lesson and written feedback with your homework.
