Our teaching method

Our method Start.nl is for people who want to learn Dutch quickly in a communicative and interactive way. The website and textbook are equally important, each chapter starts with ‘preparation’ on the website. After the preparation on the interactive website, students can put their new knowledge into practice in class. In every chapter there is also attention for Dutch culture. Homework for the course is approximately 2 to 3 hours a week (20 to 30 minutes per day). Classes are confirmed after the minimum number of students have paid the tuition fee**.

Our teachers are all Dutch natives, with in-class and online teaching experience. The teachers live or have lived in Taiwan and are familiar with culture and language, which gives them the understanding of particular difficulties for Mandarin speakers to learn the Dutch language. The language of instruction is Chinese and/or English.

If you have already followed a Dutch language course and have obtained some language skills, DUTCH APPROACH does offer language courses from level A1 to C2. If you are interested in joining one of our more advanced courses, please contact info@dutch-approach.nl.
