Courses for Children

Learn Dutch (Nederlands) and have fun at the same time!

We work with timely themes to expand vocabulary in oral and written Dutch. A variety of senses are used through games, singing, arts and crafts, video and parties such as Koningsdag and Sinterklaas to make the learning memorable. Students learn Dutch and also the foods, geography, customs and culture of the Low Countries (the Netherlands and Belgium).

In offering a fun and informative program, children enjoy learning the Dutch language and culture.

Join us and experience a Touch of Dutch!
