A good way to learn Dutch is to combine a Dutch course with ‘learning by doing’ with colleagues, neighbours and acquaintances. Courses range from beginner’s skills to advanced skills and beyond. Courses are offered by various providers and come in different forms, for example day courses, evening courses or e-learning courses.
TU Delft provides its international employees (and accompanying families) with an overview of regional Dutch course providers. Please note that this list is not necessarily an endorsement and that there might be additional providers in the region.
Overview of language courses

Dutch language levels
There are different kinds of Dutch language certification, depending on whether the ‘student’ is already in the Netherlands or still in a foreign country. It would be wise to determine your Dutch language skills and needs before you start Dutch lessons.
