Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!

Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

Chrissy, she is always well prepared for the class., My children like her very much. Most importantly, she is a lovely person.
Erin
We adore Chrissy. She is a delight to be around, is very welcoming, patient, and encouraging. Her talent is very apparent and she extends that to her students with each lesson. My daughter has displayed noticeable improvement each week and looks forward to seeing Chrissy and practicing. Incorporating students' personal music likes is also very motivating- starting with scales and basic lessons and ending with a personal challenge has been very motivating to my daughter. I cannot recommend Chrissy enough. She is a great teacher!

"Remi is AMAZING!!! Seriously.......AMAZING at teaching!!! Within several weeks I had a sound grasp on basic Dutch language - my move overseas to Belgium and subsequent weeks spent settling into local life and culture was made all the better for being able to make myself understood with the locals. Remi is patient, knowledgeable and very proficient in the art of teaching. Book a lesson - you won't be disappointed."

She has some homework with is fine by me. Hopefully, we could do some as a family, for a student to teach what they have learned is a valuable reinforcement. Though a teen teaching her parents, we shall see. .. HA!"

Dutch Language Classes Near You

About 23 million people in the world speak Dutch as their first language. The vast majority of Dutch speakers live in the Netherlands and Flanders, which is located in northern Belgium. Throughout history, the Netherlands has held colonies across the globe, from South America and the Caribbean to Asia and Africa. As a result, Dutch is spoken in many remarkable places.

Dutch tends to lend and adopt words to and from other languages, so Dutch speakers employ many English phrases, such as “bad hair day” and “out-of-the-box.” There are also more than 1,500 Dutch words that have earned their place in the English dictionary. 

It's not just the language that's friendly. Native Dutch speakers tend to be very welcoming of anyone who tries to learn their language as well, especially since it's not one of the more commonly studied languages.

Why Learn to Speak Dutch?

If you're a native English speaker, Dutch is considered one of the easiest languages to learn because its Germanic roots make it very similar to English. Ranked as a “Category I” language by the Foreign Service Institute, Dutch and English share many linguistic, syntactic, and cultural similarities. 

English speakers should only require about 24 to 30 weeks (approximately 600 to 750 hours of study) to reach high enough proficiency to communicate clearly in conversation. Students learning Dutch will be able to carry on simple conversations in even less time.

In addition to being a simple language for English speakers to learn, Dutch also shares commonalities with a couple more complex languages. Afrikaans and German have many similarities. As a result, learning Dutch first makes it much easier for an English speaker to pick up these additional languages!

Topics You'll Cover in Dutch Lessons Near You

Want to know how to learn Dutch fast? The best way is with a private tutor. In private dutch lessons near you, you'll benefit from receiving immediate feedback and having your tutor's undivided attention. You'll overcome challenges more quickly with lessons that motivate and inspire. 

When taking private lessons, you'll also enjoy a unique curriculum that has been personalized to your interests, skill level, and age. For example, when a student signs up to learn Dutch for kids, lesson topics differ greatly from those in Dutch classes for adults. Here’s a bit of what you’ll learn at each level, from beginner to advanced. 

Sample Curriculum in Dutch for Beginners

Dutch for beginners is perfect for anyone with little or no previous experience speaking the language. In beginner classes, you'll be introduced to the language and learn everything you need to advance into more complex communication. Your teacher will likely cover the following topics:

  • Proper pronunciation
  • Common vocabulary
  • Simple phrases
  • Greetings and introductions
  • Regular verbs, nouns, adjectives, articles, and pronouns

Sample Curriculum for Intermediate Dutch

Intermediate Dutch classes are intended to build upon a student's basic knowledge of the language. These classes introduce more complex concepts and take a student to near-fluency. At this level, your teacher might cover the following topics:

  • Irregular verbs
  • Complex constructions
  • Verb tenses and moods
  • Conversation practice
  • Colloquialisms

Sample Curriculum for Advanced Dutch

Students with a thorough grasp of Dutch grammar, syntax, and vocabulary can progress into advanced lessons. At this stage, you’ll study the intricacies of Dutch, expand your vocabulary, and strive for a native accent. Your teacher may cover the following topics:

  • Listening comprehension
  • Accent reduction
  • Advanced reading and writing in Dutch
  • Dutch culture and customs

How to Learn Dutch Fast with a Private Dutch Tutor Near You

If you want to learn to speak Dutch quickly, you'll need to find the right teacher. A simple search here at TakeLessons will reveal a long list of teachers who offer Dutch language classes near you. Our tutors are highly rated, have years of experience, and provide lessons to students of all ages.

Before selecting a teacher, we recommend browsing their profiles and reading through the reviews left by other students. It's also important to choose a tutor with experience in your area of interest. 

For example, if you want to learn Pennsylvania Dutch, a dialect spoken in Pennsylvania, be sure your tutor is fluent in that dialect. If, however, you're interested in learning for travel, look for a teacher who's familiar with the dialect in your Dutch-speaking destination. 

Your private tutor will customize lessons to help you meet your language goals — whether they be navigating an upcoming vacation or conducting an international business meeting. Whatever your reason for attending Dutch classes near you, you'll be speaking and conversing with confidence after just a few lessons!
