Not everybody starts off at the same point and therefore we provide you with study materials that fit your level. Your teacher will quickly find out what it is that you still want and need to focus on during your NT2 cursus. This way learning Dutch and getting ready for the NT2 exam will be as easy and fun as can be.

Lessons that always fit your busy schedule

Life is busy as an expat, we know. We therefore made sure that our NT2 cursus is completely flexible and tailors to your schedule. It is totally up to you when, where, how often and how long you want to plan your lessons.

Your schedule, your rules. Want to cram with an intensive NT2 cursus, or take your time with weekly lessons? It’s all up to you. All of our lesson packages are valid for 6 months. This way you will have plenty of time to finish your NT2 course, even when life gets in the way. Did something come up? Cancel your Dutch lesson up to 48 hours in advance, free of charge.

Gain confidence with your native Dutch teacher

Your private Dutch tutor will help you finetune your skills until you are confident in taking the NT2 exam. We take great care in finding you the right teacher, one that fits your level, learning goals and needs. Good chemistry is key in this.

We have helped many students prepare for their exam with our NT2 cursus, allowing them to gain citizenship or their language certification. Your teacher will therefore know how to assist you and will use their own material combined with past examination papers during the course. This way you get to prepare and practice to the fullest. Before starting your NT2 cursus, we plan a discounted trial lesson for you to get to know your teacher. Not completely sure about your tutor? We will set up another trial lesson for free, until we’ve found you the right person.

The amount of hours you need to reach your NT2 – goals depend on various factors such as your current language level, your affinity with languages and the amount of time you spend practicing Dutch outside of your lessons. After your trial lesson and level assessment, you get to choose a 10 – / 20 – / or 40 hour package and decide for yourself on lesson length & frequency. Most students take 1-2 classes a week but this is completely up to you. In any case your lesson credit is valid for 6 months so you will always have plenty of time to complete your lessons.

During our classes you will be taught through our own custom lesson materials. These use clever principles to get you familiar with the basics of the language. Furthermore your teacher will complement these with exams from previous years to practice your skills and keep track of your progress. That way you’ll know exactly when you’re ready for the real NT2 exam.

Sure, our NT2 cursus can be taken either face to face or online. If you choose online lessons, you receive a 10% discount on the existing package price. Lessons will be given through Skype, Zoom, Google Meet or another suitable video platform.

Definitely. If you wish to speed up the language process and have the time to take multiple lessons a week, we’d be more than happy to assist you with that. You decide on the lesson frequency and length of your NT2 cursus, so you can even start with 1 intensive week and take it slow after that. Intensive study can really help you gain more knowledge quickly and does often lead to fast results.

Our NT2 cursus is completely flexible and will be planned based on your schedule. You let us know which days & amount of hours you have available during the week, we will then find a teacher that fits your needs. Classes can be scheduled at home in Amsterdam, Haarlem or Leiden, in your favorite café or even online.

If and how much homework you will receive all depends on your schedule, language goals and preferences. If you don’t have the time or willingness to focus on homework outside of class, your teacher will not bother you with it. If you want to study a lot outside of lesson hours, then we’ll make sure you can.

Yes, if you wish to take private Dutch lessons with your friend/partner/colleague you can! Your teacher will prepare both of you for the NT2 exam and you get to practice together outside of the ‘classroom’ which will make studying even more fun. Added benefit: every extra student receives a 50% discount on their lesson package!

Yes. We can help you prepare for the Inburgering just as we can do for the NT2 exam. With the help of our custom lesson material and exams from previous years, your private Dutch teacher will help you get prepared in no time.

Yes, our package prices are all inclusive and even cover the teacher’s travel costs. Easy right?

We send you an invoice at the start of your course, the payment can be made through bank transfer. As soon as we have received the full amount, you are ready to start your lessons. There is also the possibility to pay for our popular and premium packages in 3 installments, with the first payment upfront.

Of course! It’s exciting that your employer sees the value of your Dutch language course and we will gladly invoice the full amount to him/her. All we need are the correct contact – & invoice details and we’re good to go.

We offer the possibility to end your course and get a full refund up until your 3rd lesson. Not happy with your teacher or stuck with a busy calendar? We’ll gladly help you find an alternative tutor or extend your lesson credit for another month or 2 to fit your schedule.

Heb je nog vragen?

(Do you have any questions?)

Hoi! Ik ben Casper.

When I moved from the Netherlands to the U.S. as a child, I didn’t speak a single word of English. All I could do was try to learn. I know how powerful it can be to break down the language barrier and finally be able to speak to someone openly. Through Dutch Ready, I want to share that feeling with others.

Coming from a neuroscience background, I was surprised that no other Dutch NT2 course actually used the natural way our brains learn a new skill – by applying what you already know, and simplifying what you don’t. Having shaped our method around this principle, I’m confident you’ll be amazed by how easy Dutch can be.

I hope you’re excited to start learning for your NT2 exam. Still want to ask a question or two before signing up? No problem! Just ask me anything!

Tot ziens!
