Summer Dutch Classes 2015 in The Hague

For those new to Holland (expats, foreign students, diplomats), the summer season can often be the best time to start learning Dutch, or to further improve upon those language skills already acquired. Aside from being out of school or having a slow period at work, making it easier to focus on acquiring new language skills, there tends to be far more accelerated and intensive courses available than during the rest of the year.

Accelerated courses are shorter in duration than a standard course, typically only lasting 4-7 weeks compared to a standard course which may be 10-15 weeks. The same coursework is covered in a shorter amount of time, requiring more frequent classroom sessions (usually 2 classes per week vs. 1 per week with a standard course) as well as more hours dedicated to out-of-class study and homework. An accelerated course will be harder, but the benefit is being able to attain the same Dutch skill level more quickly than through a standard course.

An intensive Dutch language course is even shorter, usually lasting just one or two weeks. During this type of course, the learning process is magnified; the combination of classroom hours, homework and independent study will require a minimum of 8 hours per day if not longer to fully grasp and retain the what is being taught. The benefit, of course, is reaching the same skill level in a fraction of the time it would take with a standard Dutch course.
