My son has is going on his 4th lesson with Remi. I was amazed with how Remi has helped him not only to play the guitar but to also read music in such a very short time. He has enjoyed the practice lessons with Remi and always looks fwd to going home and working on his lessons. Remi is very good with my teenage son and sets a very entertaining and fun mood for learning his guitar (we love his humor). I highly recommend that if you are going to choose someone to teach you or your child how to play an instrument, Remi is the perfect choice. We plan to hopefully continue our lessons with him and look fwd to seeing our son progress more.

About Dillon S.

Miami, FL

Introductory Dutch lessons for English speakers. I grew up in Curaçao, an island part of the kingdom of the Netherlands, so naturally I grew up learning Dutch in school. Dutch is spoken natively in the Netherlands and Belgium, but also in parts of the Caribbean, Suriname, and to a lesser degree South Africa and Indonesia. Dutch shares a lot in common with the other Germanic languages, English and German.

Paul was wonderful . It was a little mixup on the location but everything turned out fine. Paul was able to identify the areas I need to work on and I’m looking forward to my next class.

An amazing teacher that has truly changed my life, and challenges me to be a better musician every week!

Paul has been a tremendous instructor for me and my journey on learning acoustic guitar. During lessons he has also taught me music theory and explained it simply, and through that I feel like the guitar and music in general has been opened up to me and I now see music more clearly. I highly recommend him as an instructor!

Why TakeLessons?


Dutch Lessons

Do you want to take Dutch lessons with the perfect teacher near you? If yes, then you’ve come to the right place. Private Dutch lessons and classes with a TakeLessons Certified™ teacher - whether in-home, studio, or online - accelerates your progress, increases enjoyment, and improves every student's chances of becoming a fluent user of the Dutch language. Private tutoring makes learning easy, it's more affordable than you might think, and it's the most impactful way to improve your skills for beginner or advanced learners.

Our Dutch tutors work with students of all ages: kids, teenagers, adults, and even seniors. They can teach you the origins of the Dutch language, in addition to the vocabulary, the grammar, the punctuation, the consonants, the vowels, allophones, sentence structures, gender differences, and other technical aspects. Learn about and experience the physical, social, and emotional benefits of learning Dutch.

Dutch is classified as a Category 1 language (meaning it's one of the easiest languages to master for English speakers), and it takes up to 24 weeks, or 750 hours, of deliberate practice to gain General Professional Fluency. A private tutor can help keep you focused, committed, and motivated, not to mention their ability to help you overcome any language hurdles you have trouble with.

Your tutor offers you expert language learning techniques and tips, and helps you develop good practice habits, so that you can maximize your learning experience, and achieve your goals faster.

Alternative Language Lesson Methods:
Dutch Apps and Books

For independent language learners, downloading popular language apps - free and premium - or checking out Dutch books from the library are excellent options. They cost less overall than private lessons, and allow you to learn at your own pace, on your own time, and the topics of your own choosing. The downside is that you don't have personal instruction for the times you need to overcome any challenging obstacles. Learning with a partner or a teacher gives you the personal interaction you need to verbally practice and attempt the language.

Netherlands and Belgium Travel & Immersion

If you're considering study-abroad programs in the Netherlands or Belgium, work relocation, international business opportunities, or general travel as a means to learning Dutch, immersing yourself and interacting with locals is a surefire way to accelerate your learning. Reading signs, menus, and local newspaper magazines while abroad could expose you to all kinds of spontaneous subjects. Conversing with or having to ask native speakers for directions or recommendations forces you to proactively apply your lessons. The downside is that many students, professionals, and travelers don't feel as confident in taking this approach. Not knowing the basics of the language could backfire on you, and lead to poor decision making. If you learn basic conversation and the most popular phrases for traveling, then you can combine this knowledge with immersion and return home a more fluent speaker.

Group Classes

Taking small group classes to learn a new language is another good way to acquire basic language skills, immediate feedback, and human interaction. It combines both passive and active learning. A professional instructor leading the class can keep the agenda tight and ensure each student gets the chance to participate, and get their questions answered. It can also be more affordable than private 1-on-1 lessons. Find local group Dutch classes near you by doing a quick Google search, or better yet, sign up for TakeLessons Live, the new and affordable way to learn languages, and to learn how to play musical instruments in small groups of 5-8. You pay a flat monthly or annual fee, and get unlimited access to hundreds of classes online every month. Perfect for beginners.

At TakeLessons, we understand every student is different, and that the best way to learn any language is to try a combination of various learning techniques. Try all of the above, find out what works best for you, and then study hard and smart. It's only a matter of time before you achieve your goals.
