Learn to speak Dutch in the heart of Amsterdam

Do you want to understand the language of the country you live in and boost your resumé and social life? Centre Français-Néerlandais offers weekly Dutch courses on different levels, specifically adapted to francophones. You are, of course, still welcome in case you are not francophone but please take note that the lessons will be in Dutch with, in case needed, some explanations in French.

The courses of Centre Français-Néerlandais

All of our teachers are Dutch natives who have mastered French and perfectly know the needs and difficulties specific to foreign inhabitants. They will help you to get the self-confidence you need to be able to communicate in Dutch. All of our lessons are in Dutch and also suitable for non-French speakers.

Our classes take place in the Walloon Church, a historic site in the heart of Amsterdam, where French and Dutch people have met already for almost 450 years.


Our course offers

We offer two types of Dutch courses:

  • General Dutch course

During our general Dutch course, you will work on all aspects of the Dutch language (grammar, reading, writing, listening and speaking). Our teachers will help you to understand the language and the culture better and will help you to express yourself. Language methods, scenarios, news, practical cases,... our teachers adapt to the needs of each group and provide personalized support in your language learning.

  • Tailor-made course

We also offer Dutch courses tailored to your specific needs. These courses can take place in our building, but also in another place or in your company. If you are interested in a tailor-made course, you can contact us directly by email or by phone
