Experience the Dutch language

Learning and Living Dutch: Online classes

Experience the Dutch language in small groups


The Dutch courses of AvaLingua are all about interaction and practicing your Dutch in real life. You will learn how to put your Dutch into practice in everyday situations. We will also be practicing this during our activities outside the classroom and for the online classes we created interesting different activities. Some examples of the activities are finding your way through the supermarket, interviewing people and ordering something in a cafe. In this way, you have the opportunity to experience using your Dutch together with other students (max. 7) while being guided by your teacher. Living and learning Dutch: That is the AvaLingua way of learning Dutch!

In short, during this course you will learn and experience how to use the Dutch language actively in everyday situations. The main focus during the class will be on improving your speaking skills. Next to that, you we will improve your writing, listening and reading skills. We pay attention to grammar and vocabulary as well.

New ONLINE small group courses: conversational courses start in June and August and full level courses start in August.

Avalon is an amazing teacher, very kind and accommodating. Gezellige docent 🙂 I followed the A1 course, because I was interested to learn the language. Another + is that it offers a full online class which is very convenient for a busy professional like me, no need to rush in traffic, I just have to login to the class and meet the group ready for the next lesson! Now, I have more vocabulary and better understanding of basic grammar. During this A1 course, you will learn to make sense of the day-to-day Dutch words you hear. And you will start understanding some of the basic Dutch conversation. I’m excited to continue my learning journey in the A2 group. Dank je wel, Avalon / Avalingua! Tot ziens. 🙂

Before I started my Dutch Lessons at AvaLingua, I had a lack of confidence in speaking and grammar. Now, I am more comfortable with the language. I also like how each class is structured into time slots. You do different things in the same class so you keep your mind active all the time. I chose the classes at AvaLingua because of the small group courses and affordable fees. Are you considering classes with AvaLingua? Go for it! Don't have second thoughts.

I followed the A1 course, and soon will start with A2 course. The A1 course was very entertaining, I like the variety of material and how Avalon makes learning Dutch fun. The material provided also makes it easier to understand, it is very clear. I decided to take classes with AvaLingua because they are online and it was recommended by a friend. I recommend the course! But be motivated to do homeworks as well, otherwise you don’t learn. Go for it! 🙂

AvaLingua is a great place to learn Dutch. I follow private classes with Avalon and she has seen me grow from A0 to B1 very quickly. Although it is pricy, it's worth every cent. Avalon is a fantastic and patient teacher, she makes sure I understand all of the Dutch grammar and language rules before going to the next topic. The private classes with Avalon also offer a great deal of flexibility, so I can discuss a multitude of topics and ideas with her, especially ones that relate to my job. I highly recommend her if you're looking to learn Dutch at a deeper level!
