Study Dutch in the Home of Your Own Private Teacher in the Netherlands

The Netherlands is a small but intensely beautiful country with a positive, frank, and open-minded culture. The upright Dutch attitude is nicely summed up by the national motto – Doe maar normaal, dan doe je al gek genoeg, which literally means "Just behave normally, it’s crazy enough". This amazing country has something for everyone – pristine natural spaces, big cities, evocative old towns with over 2000 years of history, thousands of kilometres of bike lanes, and much more! We`re thrilled to be able to offer the Live & Learn program in three wonderful cities, Amsterdam, Rotterdam, and Eindhoven.

Amsterdam is much more than its notorious red-light district and cannabis coffee shops. This enchanting city has a variety of cultural attractions, including the Rijkmuseum, Van Gogh Museum, Hermitage Museum, and the Anne Frank House. Amsterdam`s historic canals have been named a UNESCO World Heritage Site and lend the city a particular charm. If you visit during one of Amsterdam`s many festivals then you may also get to experience one of the city`s spectacular canal parades!

 is an architecturally marvelous city with art-dominated streets, influential design studios, and plenty of trendy bars and restaurants. The striking, forward-looking city is infused with a pervasive and infectious optimism that`s sure to keep you motivated while you study the beautiful Dutch language!

Eindhoven is a beautiful city built around two great institutions: the Eindhoven University of Technology, and the Philips Company. The University has brought a lively and youthful community to the city – along with plenty of bars, clubs, and restaurants, while the Philips Company is responsible for founding a number of cultural institutions. These include several major sports buildings and the Muziekcentrum Frits Philips. This industry giant has also lit up various buildings throughout the city, leading to Eindhoven`s nickname the “City of Lights”.

With the Live & Learn program you`re sure to experience this amazing country in a unique and truly immersive way. Your host family will be there to recommend particular attractions and activities as they get to know you personally through your private and professional Dutch lessons. Almost everyone is this positive, eco-friendly nation speaks English as well as Dutch so, no matter where you decide to study, you`re sure to find plenty of people to practice your language skills with.
