Dutch Courses

The Dutch language is a West Germanic language and is the native language of most of the population of the Netherlands. Most speakers live in the European Union, where it is the first language for about 23 million and a second language for another 5 million people.

The Dutch language is related to Frisian, German and English. It’s also referred to Hollands, or Hollandish, by those in the Netherlands.

It may not be obvious from how Dutch sounds, but apart from Frisian (which is spoken in the Dutch province of Friesland), it is the modern language closest to English and thus the easiest language to learn for native speakers of English! There’s a surprising amount of modern Dutch which comes directly from the English language.

So take the plunge! There are many reasons to learn Dutch or to improve your Dutch. You will have quick success! Interested? Why not try our Dutch language course; the effort will pay off in ways you will never expect.
