Children (6-18 years)

We offer Dutch classes for children from 6 to 18 years. During and after the Covid Pandemic parents choose/chose more for private lessons at their homes or online. So now there are no groups available. Depending on age and target, a class will take up from 1 to 1.5 hours. Private lessons for (a small group of) children at your home? We can arrange it!

Together with the parents we determine the language target for the children. Tests are according to the DLE (Didactisch Leeftijds Equivalent – Didactic Age Equivalent), Meijerink, CEFR (European Framework for Modern Languages). Lessons are divided into two parts: a language or culture project part and a part where children work individually at their own pace and level (iPad/Muiswerk/Nieuwsbegrip/CLIL)

iPad education

Learn Dutch is aware of children’s fascination for iPads and how various applications are actually designed to improve language skills. In our Dutch classes for children we make use of iPad education – using apps which teach them new vocabulary and spelling skills.

Muiswerk - NUMO

‘Muiswerk’ (literally translated: mouse work) is the ultimate modern way of adaptive learning for children. By using digital language programs, Muiswerk determines every child’s personal level, while establishing exactly which skills the individual needs to improve. Based on these findings, a personal learning program will be developed – all happening in the online virtual learning space. Our children’s classes use the Muiswerk - NUMO approach.

Nieuwsbegrip XL

When children start reading, teachers start to make use of the Nieuwsbegrip XL program. With Nieuwsbegrip we practice (online) pronunciation, vocabulary and reading comprehension.

Content Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

Learning a language is more than just studying words and grammar. The CLIL programme helps us integrate your work and study vocabulary into the Dutch language. For instance, we ask children to explain to teachers – in Dutch of course! –what they have learnt at their South African school.

Of course we won’t forget cultural events like: Sinterklaas, Koningsdag, Prinsjesdag, (Kinder)boekenweek!
