See you… in the Hague!


The main objective of the program is to practice English as much as possible and to improve your language skills. In addition, you have a chance to learn more about Dutch culture and traditions spending 2 or 4 weeks in a wonderful city! You will also join excursions, visits to various organizations, bike trips, leisure activities, meet interesting people, and not only improve your English but get an unforgettable experience!

Study language abroad – is not just a trend, this is the most effective method to learn the language if you want to achieve results in a short period of time. Immersion in the environment is the best way to overcome the language barrier and make a significant break!

The Netherlands is a very small country and you can easily travel during your free time. For instance, it takes only 45 min to get from The Hague to Amsterdam. The biggest airport in the Netherlands (Schiphol) is only 15 min train ride from the city center of Amsterdam and half an hour from the Hague. The Hague is one of the international centers for the UN and other international institutions. Here you could find the International Court of Justice, International Criminal Tribunal, International Organization for Migration, and others.

Upon arrival, participants are tested and divided into groups according to their levels. Focus is made on the development of speaking skills and overcoming the language barrier. Grammar is affected as well depending on the group level and capabilities. Our tutors actively use the communicative method when students are encouraged to speak as much as possible.

Classes are conducted 5 days a week from Monday to Friday, 4 academic hours per day. All tutors are native speakers from the UK, USA and Australia.

If you want to want to develop your professional vocabulary, we could offer Business Course instead of General Course. The schedule is the same - classes are conducted 5 days a week from Monday to Friday, 4 academic hours per day. All tutors are also native speakers from the UK, USA and Australia.

In the scope of this course, you learn business vocabulary, business correspondence, practice the skills of business negotiations, passing interviews and etc. Various business cases are discussed and role-played in English.

If you choose Business Course - please indicate this in your application form.

If you are not going to study in a group, you could choose Individual Classes. Classes are conducted 5 days a week from Monday to Friday, 2 academic hours per day. All tutors are also native speakers from the UK, USA and Australia. Usually, a teacher offers you a General Course, but you could add a business, legal, medical, engineering or another area. Our tutors also could offer you preparation for international exams such as IELTS, TOEFL and others.

You could influence on the class structure, whether you want the tutor to pay more attention to the vocabulary or to spend more time on grammar or speaking.

You could choose Individual Classes instead of the whole General Course or just add them as additional classes. Please see the price for a separate class in the additional prices section.

If you choose Individual classes - please indicate this in your application form.

Although almost everyone in The Netherlands speaks English, the official language in the country is Dutch! This language is a “mixture” of German, English and little bit of French. If you want to learn Dutch - join the additional classes of Basic Dutch for foreigners. Classes are conducted 3 times on weekdays, 3 academic hours per day. All tutors are native Dutch. Dutch classes do not coincide with English classes.

This course is especially useful for those who are going to continue studying in The Netherlands or Belgium (where the Dutch language is one of the three national languages).

The course is suitable for beginners. If you already know Dutch at a certain level, please indicate this in the application form.
