Thanks to the increasing internationalisation more and more speakers of foreign languages are coming to live and work in the Netherlands. At first glance it does not seem necessary to learn the Dutch language because English is understood all around the Netherlands. But even so, mastering the Dutch language is an important factor to integrate quickly and successfully – not just at work but also in the private environment.
Our Dutch language courses focus on either introducing the participants to the (business) usage of Dutch or adding to their existing knowledge during individual- and group courses. The courses we provide are tailored to the company, the position and the individual goals of our course members.
For non-native speakers it is not only important to be proficient in the Dutch language but also to have a proper understanding of the Dutch people, their way of working and their style of doing business. We supervise their efforts to improve their communications with Dutch-speaking colleagues, the focus being cultural differences and the way these manifest themselves in the day-to-day working practice.
Taleninstituut Rotterdam offers various business language trainings in Rotterdam, dependent on the number of employees, their starting level, the goal to be achieved and the available time. All of our courses are custom made, aimed at practical application and completely in tune with the starting level of the participant and the needs and wishes of the company.
Flexible Dutch language courses
Flexible courses are available for participants who do not have a lot of spare time. Courses of two to three hours can be given at times that are agreed upon by you at your location in Rotterdam or surroundings.
Semi-intensive Dutch language courses
This semi-intensive language training consists of a number of whole days which can be spread over several weeks. This form of training is recommended for students for whom the flexible training progresses too slowly, and who need more freedom of choice as to when they can fit the training into their individual schedules.
Intensive Dutch language courses
The intensive language course involves the participant following the course for full days for a duration of one of more weeks. This type of course is suitable for participants who need to bring their language knowledge up to a higher level in a short period of time and who are motivated to work on learning the language on a (nearly) full time basis.
Remote language training
Language learning is well-suited to remote training for both individuals and groups. It is ideal whether you want to follow a language course form home, from various locations or if you are a frequent business traveler.
As an addition on our customized programs which are based on your function, line of business and situation, you could also use our e-learning system.
