Learn Dutch in 2012:
Small groups & Idiom blog

Hello [fname],

A very happy New Year to you all!

Gelukkig nieuwjaar!
Happy New Year

For those of you who are planning to learn (more) Dutch in 2012, we are happy to tell you we have several options for you again, even if you do not live in The Netherlands or Belgium. Here is an update about our group lessons in Groningen and some words about our idiom blog. We will inform later you about our other options (especially for those of you living outside The Netherlands).


Learn Dutch in Small groups

In Groningen we practice in small groups of 3 to 5 people. In this group you will learn to speak and understand Dutch in a pleasant way. We focus on speech and understanding. Pronunciation is an important issue. We try to keep grammar and writing to a minimum. Of course we start with many basic expressions, but later on you can also bring your own subjects to talk about. We work with 3 or 4 different levels.

Each course takes 6 weeks, one lesson of 90 minutes each week and self study. Fee is € 150 per person, including learning material. The group (max 5 people) meet once a week on a Tuesday or a Wednesday (depending on the language level).

We will start new groups in 2012 on the following dates:

Update about our Dutch Idiom BLOG

Much to our grief the Idiom blog has suffered much downtime due to a problematic migration from one server to another. The provider was forced to move but it caused many problems for at least 300,000 blogs, ours included. We could not reach it until recently.

In 2012 we will work with it again and add new idiom and post more frequently to help you learn Dutch idiom. Promise!

Fortunately many of our previous posts (dating back to 2006!) can still be found.

Read our 18 Dutch phrases from the TWUTCH Twitter course, for instance and listen to a phrase by clicking it ! You'll find many other interesting Dutch expressions posted there during the previous years. With sound links!

In our next newsletter we will tell you more about our other options! Of course you can find all information at our official Say it in Dutch website >
