Learning a language is often seen as frustrating, but if you do it the right way, it's actually really fun! I'm here to guide you to make your learning process as efficient and fun as possible.

What are we going to learn?

In Nederlands Level 1 we're going to start from the basics and build a strong vocabulary and grammar knowledge for you to be able to speak and understand Dutch in basic daily conversations.

How to learn Dutch?

We're going to build a strong base by learning how to actually learn the Dutch language in an effective way.

Dutch in a café

We're going to learn everything you need to know when going for a few drinks, or for a coffee with some friends.

Introducing yourself in Dutch

We learn how to introduce yourself in Dutch in both a brief and detailed way, with all the grammar needed.

Making appointments the Dutch way

Appointments are a necessary thing for us Dutch people. We're going to look at how to formulate suggestions and make appointments in a grammatically-correct way.

Talking about family and relationships

We will learn how to talk about family and relationships, and formulate questions.

Grocery shopping in Dutch

We're going to learn to name products in Dutch, have conversations at the market, and ask for help in a supermarket.

What students say

I highly recommend Koen as your Dutch teacher. To me, he is more than just a Dutch teacher but a motivational coach as well. His personalised courses are fun yet professional, the content and platform are structured, digestible and user-friendly and last but not least, he is a great pedagogue who is reliable, listens and adapts to each students' particular needs.

I am really glad I made the decision to enroll in Dutch courses with SociaTaal. I find the lessons very interactive and Koen takes care to customise the lessons to his learners' learning style and adds a personal touch to lessons! I feel that I can say if I require emphasis on something specific and trust that my needs will be met. I can see improvement every week.
