Learning a new language from scratch is a big task. With the personal care of private Dutch lessons, you will start to see great results in just a short period of time. Our native Dutch teachers are excited to help you accomplish your learning goals, and have plenty of experience with beginner students.

All of our Dutch lesson packages are custom made for our students. Before starting your beginner course, we find out what your current level is, what your learning goals are and when you’d like to start. Based on this information we match you up with one of our tutors for a discounted trial lesson (€15) so you can meet them yourself. Not a perfect fit? We’ll schedule a second lesson with another tutor, free of charge.

"Great experience with private Dutch lessons at Dutch Ready. The method they created (free material) also helps a lot at the beginning, and gives you the boost you need to finally pick it up. Thanks to Casper, today I'm able to speak and even do presentations in Dutch. Definitely recommended.

How long it takes to learn a new language is a bit difficult to say, as it depends on multiple factors. However, we believe that with private lessons and our unique teaching method we can speed up the process quite a bit. From experience we can say that we’ve had students grow tremendously from beginner to basic conversational skills in only 20 lesson hours. That’s fantastic progress in a short amount of time!

In order to become more and more fluent in a language, depth and repetition is definitely very important. We therefore recommend taking at least 2 lessons a week of 1-1,5 hours each. That being said, ultimately this is up to you and your schedule. Taking some lessons is better than taking none at all.

Our face to face beginner lessons take place in Amsterdam, Haarlem or Leiden. You can schedule to meet your tutor either at your own home, in your favorite café or even at your teacher’s house, that’s all up to you. Another possibility is to schedule your classes online. This option will give you an extra 10% discount on your chosen lesson package.

Sure! As you are free to determine the frequency and duration of your lessons, we can easily customize an intensive course for you. This could mean that you schedule lessons every single day until the end of your course for example, or start off with a few intensive weeks while toning it down more towards the end.

We leave that up to you. Many of our students are expats with busy lives and simply can’t find the time to schedule homework in addition to their Dutch classes, work obligations and family life. If however you are excited to keep up with Dutch outside of class, your teacher will be happy to prepare homework assignments for you. This could range anywhere from 1 to 6 hours a week, depending on what you prefer ofcourse.

Sure! Studying with someone you know is a great and fun way to learn Dutch, and it usually gives just that extra bit of motivation. Even better: we offer a 50% discount for every extra student! You can find more information about our 2-on-1 lessons here.

We can definitely offer you private Dutch beginner lessons with a friend, partner, colleague or even your family members.Traditional group lessons however (where you sit in a classroom with students you don’t know), are not offered by us. We believe in personal attention and customized lesson plans, something we feel can’t be given in a large group set up.

We definitely can! Our Inburgeringscursus helps you to prepare for your exam, using our custom lesson materials alongside exams from previous years. Besides the Inburgering, we’re also happy to guide you towards taking the NT2 exam.

Yes. When you register for a first trial lesson, we will have a short conversation with you to determine your learning goals and focus points. If you want to improve your conversational skills, then we make sure to find you a teacher that can help you with that. By doing role plays, games and interactive conversations, you will notice that your vocabulary will shift from ‘beginner’ to ‘intermediate’ in no time!

You sure can! If you already have a beginner course book that you want to continue with, we’re happy to work with that during the lessons. Otherwise we will bring our own custom lesson materials to class, included in the package price.

Payment is to be made in advance by bank transfer. You can pay the full amount of the course either in 1 go, or choose to pay in 2 or 3 terms (available for the Popular & Premium package). We will of course provide you with an invoice.

Even better: Dutch lessons are completely tax free as determined by the Dutch government. Easy as that!

Definitely. All we need are your company’s invoice details and the email address of the person handling finances. The invoice for your Dutch beginner lessons will then get sent directly to them.

Lesson credits are valid for 3-9 months, depending on the package you choose. Within these 3-9 months you have the freedom to schedule lessons when and where you want, making it possible to pause your course for a few weeks should that become necessary. Simply can’t find a way to complete your course in time? We’ll be happy to discuss the possibilities of extending your credits whenever necessary.
