Online Group Courses
SociaTaal

The mix you've been looking for.

Group Classes

Every course consists of 5 group classes, each lasting 2 hours. During these classes we focus mostly on what we've learned during our self-study time by putting everything we've learned in to conversation exercises.

Private classes

You can book four 30-minute private sessions with just you and I. During these sessions we focus on any difficulties in the self-study materials and practice the vocabulary and grammar with speaking-only exercises.

Self-study

Every course consists of five modules. Each module has an interactive self-study part where you learn about new grammar, vocabulary, and communicative topics. The self-study consists of videos, interactive questions, writing exercises, vocabulary puzzles, and much more.

What can you expect?

Courses with SociaTaal are fun and professional. I believe in quality over quantity, and having you succeed is our main goal.

Small groups

Small groups mean higher quality. For this reason, every course allows only 4 to 8 participants.

Focus on speaking, listening and writing

Grammar is important, but the course focuses mainly on speaking, listening, and writing. We learn grammar to build a strong base and implement that into conversations.

Meet new people

Learning a new language is the best excuse to meet new people. In this course, you will learn new things individually and apply them in conversations together.

Partially flexible

The private classes can be booked flexibly so that it fits your schedule. Same goes for working through the self-study materials. Only the 5 group classes are on a set date and time.

Certificate of completion

After completing the course and achieving the set requirements, you will get a certificate of completion.

Paperless learning experience

The courses are completely digital. You can always use paper to take notes, but paper is not used in SociaTaal's class materials.
Meet the instructor

Koen Kleinstra

Nice to meet you! I'm a 24 year old teacher and language enthusiast living in and enjoying Amsterdam with all the beautiful things the city has to offer. I have over 5 years of teaching experience and have taught for other language schools as well.
Born and raised in the south of the Netherlands and understanding different dialects and pronunciations, I like to meet and help people to achieve their language goals! 🚀

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.

Learning a new language can be daunting but Koen breaks down those barriers by really going above and beyond to make sure that your learning experience is as smooth and unique as possible. 
I also command him for knowing how to manage an online classroom, for knowing what to say and how to say it and for always being open to feedback so he can keep learning and improving his services alongside us. 
CHarlotte F. 🇫🇷 | Nederlands level 1, 2, 3 & 4
The group classes are really great, I learned a lot of new useful vocabulary and how to use it in sentences in a correct way. My Dutch is going better and better every week! 
I also met great people and enjoyed time passed with the other learners.

If you want to learn Dutch in a pleasant and efficient way, while having fun and good support, I totally recommend you to follow this course!
Dank je wel Koen :)
Marie G. | Nederlands Level 1, 2 & 3
Absolutely worth it. Koen is incredibly patient and generally a nice person to talk to. Lessons are fun, immersive and encourages speaking. He makes sure important information are drilled into memory through repetition. Koen is also genuinely open to feedback, always listens to what the student finds difficult or what can be improved in the modules. I look forward to the lessons even after a long day. I'm far from fluent still, but the progress I made and confidence I gained are way more than when I was self-studying. Highly recommend! :)

Will I get a certificate?

Can I continue the following course after this course?

Yes you can! After completing a course, a new course will open a week later. This gives you the space for a one week break and then you can continue to the next level.

What do the levels mean?

SociaTaal’s course levels are linked to the Common European Framework of Reference
for languages (CEFR). This framework is a widely recognized framework that provides a
common basis for describing language proficiency levels. A Dutch course for complete
beginners goes from A0 to A1- level. At SociaTaal we simply call it: Nederlands level 1.

A1 | Beginner: Learners at this level can understand and use basic phrases,
introduce themselves, and have simple interactions in familiar contexts.
● A2 | Elementary: Learners can comprehend and communicate in routine situations
that involve simple, direct exchanges of information on familiar topics.
● B1 | Intermediate: At this level, learners can handle a range of everyday situations,
express opinions, and produce coherent texts on familiar subjects.
● B2 | Upper Intermediate: Learners have the ability to understand complex texts,
engage in discussions, and express themselves fluently and spontaneously on
various topics.
● C1 | Advanced: Learners can comprehend and produce advanced texts, engage in
debates, and communicate effectively in professional and academic settings.
● C2 | Proficient: This is the highest level of language proficiency, where learners
can understand virtually everything they hear or read, express themselves
fluently and accurately, and use the language effectively for professional and
academic purposes.
