"The course delivered by Geert van de Ven and Arghje de Sitter was excellent. Geert designed a programme that was very well suited to my level of development and what I needed to progress further with my Dutch. Both Geert and Arghje were friendly and effective instructors, both in helping me during lessons to engage in Dutch in order to improve and in providing follow-up information to reinforce the key items learned during a lesson. Overall, I'm very satisfied"

"I wholeheartedly recommend Dutch in Dialogue to people who want to improve their Dutch. I took a two-day intensive course together with a few follow-up lessons. What struck me as exceptional was the level of personal attention and care from my trainers. Course materials were carefully put together reflecting my wishes and actual work environment. Although training days were long, they were well planned with conversations, simulations, and various other assignments. I have focused my trainings on communication. The trainers managed to provide feedbacks, guidance and challenges throughout di..."

"Relocating to a new country can be tricky. There will always be new interactions that are difficult to foresee and prepare for yourself. Understanding the language, and the non verbal communication codes are key to truly enjoy your new environment! Indeed, as a lawyer specialised in privacy, IT, technology and intellectual property, the standard approach to language and culture wasn’t really an option. Dutch In Dialogue took on this assignment with ambition and a wide range of skills. In essence, Dutch in Dialogue set me off on a wonderful learning process and empowered me to be confiden..."

"Dutch in Dialogue is a fantastic language institute training and coaching) for professionals who want to improve their level of understanding and fluency in Dutch. My level of spoken Dutch is very good but I can still sometimes struggle with Dutch in the workplace - legal jargon, complex technical vocabulary etc. The intensivetraining followed by weekly sessions was invaluable in getting me to the next level - I am now much more comfortable presenting and debating in Dutch. Thanks to my trainers/coaches Marjo Jaski and Geert van de Ven. Thanks Dutch in Dialogue."

"I highly recommend Dutch in Dialogue (DiD) as a good place to improve the language in short time. The customized program was made by taking my language level, my work and my culture into account. Thanks to the expertise there, it really fit my needs and I benefit a lot from it. The teachers at DiD have many years experience and they know how to improve the language in an effective and efficient way. The most important thing is that they are professional, patient and enthusiastic, which impressed me a lot. In a word, DiD is a perfect place for improving languages and has my highest recommenda..."

"I benefited from DID’S targeted exam preparation which built my confidence for the exam day itself. Thanks to this high quality training, I achieved high marks across all the core C1 Dutch exam areas: 87% oral, 85% listening, 98% reading. It is without hesitation that I recommend Dutch in Dialogue for all Dutch training needs."

"Very friendly and caring teachers. They genuinely to get you to higher level. The way of teaching is outstanding. Never felt I was actually following a course because everything was taught in such an easy and fun way. I would highly recommend following this course."
Jatin Guyanani
Project leader at ASML
"This year I took the step to move to the Netherlands with my family and had to prepare for the Dutch language exam for medical doctors (level B2+). During a well-structured, individual intensive course, Dutch in Dialogue helped me to reach this level. They helped me with my communications skills like presenting and during simulated role-plays. I feel now more confident to express myself in Dutch in a medical professional setting. The teachers Geert and Marjo are both professional trainers and coaches and passionate about their job. I am highly satisfied about my course at Dutch in Dialogue and..."
