Thanks to its close economic ties across the Channel, Dutch is the fifth most requested language in job adverts in the UK – in part because few people make the effort to learn the language of a race so fluent in English! Invest in some Dutch lessons and you will open the door to 23 million speakers of Dutch in the Netherlands, Belgium and a number of overseas communities. You will also gain a natural understanding of Afrikaans, which shares the same Germanic roots and linguistic characteristics as Dutch. Our evening Dutch courses are perfect preparation for a trip to a Dutch-speaking country and equally suit long term learning for those wishing to becoming fluent in Dutch through regular Dutch lessons.
In your Cactus Dutch language classes you will learn standard Dutch, and the lessons will focus on vocabulary, grammar, speaking and pronunciation. Please visit our course outline page for full information on the course content, and check our Language Course Questions page for detailed information on what to expect from our courses. To support your language evening classes, you can check out the free Dutch resources carefully assessed by the Cactus Team and listed for your reference. You can also check your level here.
