Dutch Language Courses

Dutch Language Courses are provided as per the CEFR (Common European Framework of Reference) for Languages. Dutch Language Study is further divided into 5 levels. The Elementary levels A1 and A2 focus on basic topics, frequently used expressions, informal email writing and day-to-day matters. By the end of the A2 level, a student can comfortably read and listen to short stories and fairy tales. The Intermediate levels B1 and B2 include more complex grammar structures, formal email writing and subjects and topics that help articulate individual viewpoints. The fluency is near-native and a person can comfortably work with Dutch colleagues. The Advanced level C1 is the same as a native level and a person can virtually understand everything and converse spontaneously without having to skim through a dictionary.

The technology today has also helped me connect with students abroad. I provide online trainings via Skype or other apps and prepare students for the Civic Integration (Inburgeringsexamen) and CNaVT exams. NT2 (Nederlands als tweede taal) is a government exam for foreigners staying in The Netherlands and who wish to pursue higher university studies.

“I work at the Netherlands Consulate in Mumbai and have been associated with Richa and The Dutch Door® for almost 2 years now. I have completed A1 level and am in the middle of the A2 level. My experience has been wonderful. Richa has a very deep knowledge of Dutch language. She is a very calm and composed teacher who makes sure that the students understand the lesson/ grammar/pronunciation and gives attention on an individual level. She loves teaching and has a deep affinity for learning language. She makes the experience very interactive with quizzes, exercises, group activities and conversational practice. ”

“Absolutely recommend The Dutch Door® for anyone looking to learn Dutch! I started at the A1 level and I'm now progressing through A2. The classes are fantastic - they're kept small which allows for a lot of interaction and getting pushed outside your comfort zone in a positive way. Karthik does a brilliant job of explaining grammar basics and general concepts, using lots of clear examples to make it easy to understand. The classes are also engaging - we do fun exercises like role playing from books, which make learning more enjoyable. Overall, I've had a very positive experience at The Dutch Door® . The teachers, Richa and Karthik, are both excellent. I've learned so much already and I'm confident I'll keep improving. In fact, I'm so happy with the classes that I plan to continue all the way to B2 level! Highly recommend checking them out if you're interested in learning Dutch!”

- Ahona Chakraborty,Students’ batch A2, Sept’22

“Ik zag mijn vrouw naar Dordrecht komen en ze leerde de taal stap voor stap. Het begon met weinig Nederlandse woorden en korte zinnen. Zo leerde zij steeds meer en meer. Ze kreeg opdrachten om te maken als huiswerk. Het systeem dat Richa bij “The Dutch Door” gebruikt werkt heel goed. Ze weet heel goed waar te beginnen en wat belangrijk is voor een goede basiskennis voor de Nederlandse taal. Mijn vrouw ging met grote stappen vooruit, en ik sta versteld hoe snel ze alles tot nu toe heeft geleerd. Ze verstaat alles en verbetert zelfs mij in sommige zinnen. Wij zijn Richa samen heel dankbaar voor haar inzet en hard werk. Ik hoop dat ze zo gedreven blijft, want een goede docent is maar zeldzaam. Met A1 en A2 achter de rug kijken wij erg uit naar B1.”

- George en Heena

“The training was very relevant to our needs. We enjoyed the activities and sessions and the trainer was open to answering our questions. The notes were helpful. It was made better easier because of Richa. The lessons were well organised. Richa teaches with dedication and keep us motivated.”

- Prency Monica AugustineStudents’ batch April’22

“Thank you for the wonderful course. Loved how interactive all the sessions were and kudos to the effort you put in to organise new activities every weekend. You'll be happy to know that while finalising an accommodation in Amsterdam last week, I was able to comfortably navigate the website as well as the blueprint of the floor plan in Dutch! Would love to move on to A2 level.”

- Aashima SawhneyWeekend batch, March’22

- Joe AntonyStudents’ batch Jan’22

“It's been an absolutely great experience for me to learn Dutch. The lectures were well paced and the learnings were immense. Looking forward to A2.”

- Niharika AgrawalStudents’ batch Jan’22

“Prachtige cursus! Ik heb veel plezier gehad en heb veel Nederlands geleerd. Ik kan nu met mijn collega’s in het Nederlands spreken. Tijdens de lessen hebben we veel spreekoefeningen gedaan. Ik heb dat leuk gevonden. Dankjewel! 😄 Ik werk nu in Nederland en het tijdsverschil kan soms lastig zijn.”

- Anurag Arun, NXFiltrationStudents' batch Aug'21

“The course, despite being the foundational level, was intensive and informative. I still refer to my notes and find them to be extremely useful. It was always ensured that every intense lecture was followed by a more light, easy lecture. The HW and brainstorming sessions really kept us on our toes too! Looking forward to A2.”

- Kavya RaoStudents' batch, Feb'21

“I thoroughly enjoyed the course. I feel like I have grasped the basics of the language, and I am able to recognize some vocabulary and grammatical lexicon in whatever Dutch I come across in the correspondence with my university. Your teaching was also very clear and easy to understand, I was able to follow very well. I can't wait to join the A2 level course.”

- Kushal Jayesh TatariyaStudents' batch, March'21

“I have never studied languages outside of a classroom setting before, and was used to approaching them in an extremely mechanical manner. This never enabled me to develop a relationship with them. At The Dutch Door®, despite this being remote learning, Richa's methods of teaching and engaging made me really connect with and enjoy studying the language. The classroom environment was always encouraging and accepting. I am extremely thankful for this experience and I can't wait to learn more Dutch!”

- Anjali Gaurish ChandawarkarStudents' batch, March'21

“Thanks for your efforts in making us learn Dutch. You are really good at explaining things patiently. I am happy to learn A2 under your guidance.”

- Venkata Ramana Ranga Raju AlluriStudents’ batch, Jan ’21

“The A2 level course that I took from The Dutch Door® was very thorough and nicely planned by our trainer Richa Gujarati. The provided course materials and notes were sufficient and very clear. My trainer was very professional, considerate and understanding. She went out of the way to help me prepare for the exam that was very unexpected owing to the COVID 19 related scenario at that time. Not to mention I passed the exam with flying colours. Currently I am working as HR Support Officer for the Netherlands Team of DSM. The interviewers were native Dutch people and they were surprisingly happy to listen to an Indian speaking Dutch in such a manner. So to sum up, I would recommend The Dutch Door® without any second thoughts.”

- Upasna TiwaryHR Support Officer, Dutch Team DSM

“I was not sure what to expect because the class was going to be taught remotely, also I was not sure whether I would be able to grasp it or not but I was quite impressed with the entire process. Richa's special attention to our every small pronunciations/dictations helped me to understand better and at the same time gave me confidence to speak and write better. The whole learning process was fun & professional. Richa is an expert and was very clear in her teaching method. All my questions were answered and the class interaction was very good. She gave special attention to everyone. I enjoyed doing all our activities and I would love to go for A2 level as well in the near future.”

- Krutika ShahStudents' batch, Nov '20

“It was a wonderful experience learning from you. Hope to see you soon if I opt for higher levels of Dutch.”

- Rishabh ChaturvediStudent TU Delft

“I enjoyed the course thoroughly. The structure was well devised with adequate activities. The activities were a good way to engage with fellow mates. Particularly, you were quite supportive throughout the course and prompt to clear doubts. I would highly recommend this course to my friends and acquaintances. A job well done! Thank you for a fruitful learning experience.”

- Meghna VipparthiStudent’s batch Nov ’20

“It was a great experience. The course is interesting & very effective. The road map was clear and focus was on concept understanding and correct pronunciation. The exercises and activities were planned perfectly to apply the concepts learnt. Richa is a great teacher, who is very patient, knowledgeable and always willing to help for any query. The best thing was when I tried to speak Dutch with few native speakers and they appreciated the correct accent and grammar. That really shows efficiency of this course over such a short period. I am glad that I enrolled for this course and hope that one day I will speak fluent Dutch. Veel succes en hartelijk bedankt.. :)”

- Amol Narkhede, Senior Procurement Specialist- McDermott Middle East Inc., UAE

“I truly enjoyed the A1 Dutch language course. It covers not only reading and writing, but also listening and speaking exercises. The emphasis on pronunciation and accent by Richa makes it akin to how a native speaker would speak the language. I'd recommend this course to anyone who'd like to get started with learning Dutch.”

- Arnold Fonseca

“Thanks to The Dutch Door®. Richa has helped me to understand a totally new and different language in a short time span. Even though it was difficult for me to manage office work and language study together, she has patiently resolved all my queries time to time. Her command over the language and teaching efforts have helped me a lot to understand grammar, read the sentences and speaking Dutch. This learning course was very useful in my career path. I look forward to learn from her further.”

- Vishal KulkarniSenior Design Engineer, Worley ECR

“The nature of the course is fast paced and exciting. Richa is very patient and encouraging. She ensured that we could keep up with and retain all that we learnt during the class. The course was specially helpful due to multiple methods and resources that we got to learn from. I learnt so much more about Dutch culture along the way thanks to Richa and her experience that she shared with us. For anyone wanting to start their journey with Dutch, I highly recommend The Dutch Door®.”

- Anwesha Mukherjee

“I had enrolled for the Basic A1 Dutch training (October 2020 Batch). It was very well conducted and organized. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning the language! The course content has been structured well. Richa is a very patient teacher who makes the classes fun. The group of five students in total made it possible to give personal attention. That way could make good friends too! I would have liked one exam or test at the end of the course to know where we stand. It's important to assess what has been taught. Further, since some of them are applying for job, and some for visa purpose, a class could have been devoted to each student to guide them specifically for their purpose. Thanks again for the course, Bedankt! :)”

- Nalini Raghunathan

“You really helped me to understand when I was struggling. Thank you for encouraging me. Your class taught me how to be a better student. Thank you for your patience. You are the best teacher ever!! https://www.linkedin.com/feed/update/urn:li:activity:6952966926335713280/”

- Pooja PawarStudent

“Thanks for the Dutch learning course. Overall it was a nice journey. As I can little bit understand & read some sentences.

- Sumesh Kumar GargMars International

“Thank you for your patience and efforts in teaching us. I really enjoyed learning Dutch. Also enjoyed the on-the-spot conversations and activities. They were really fun and helped build confidence in the language. Look forward to A2.”

- Malaika DSouzaStudent

“My 2-month course for the A1 level was filled with plenty of exercises surrounding all aspects of the language. I am confident that I would be able to understand e-mails, websites, and context from speech quite comfortably. This is what I needed to give me an edge while I do my Masters in the Netherlands. Credits go to my tutor Richa who excellently guided me through this journey. Bedankt!”

- Noel Vasanth, Deloitte

“Classes were nicely structured and presented. I would further like to continue A2 level. Thank you so much :)”

- Shailuranjan Kishor

“Richa has designed this course in such a way that from the very first day you start feeling involved in the learning process & develop eagerness to put more time and effort into it. According to me, this speaks volumes about her superb command on the language. This course helped me to communicate with my Dutch client a lot better as I was able to pick things up faster during our communication. I strongly recommend this course to all those who are interested in learning Dutch!”

- Mayank Kumar, Cognizant

“I have had the pleasure to learn the first Dutch A1 level from Richa. She has a smart technique to teach the language. She is fairly straightforward and friendly. Her teaching style consists of learning in smaller sessions and doing short home works but mainly focussing on the most important bits and pieces of the language to get started with. I was happy to get a head-start with Dutch and looking forward to taking the next level with her. :)”

- Yash TodarUX Researcher/Designer - Philips Design

“I had been searching for a Dutch teacher since long and then I came across The Dutch Door® and since it wasn't in my city I had started the course online, I was a bit skeptical about a language course being taught online but after meeting Richa I am sure I have come to the right place.She has good command over the language and prounciation skills as any other native speaker. Her sessions are quite interactive with a mix of reading, writing, listening and speaking.I look forward to learning new levels with her. Bedankt!”

- Snigdha Narayan, Mastek Ltd

“The training was very good and useful. Richa’s knowledge about the language is really good and the group discussions helped a lot. She took good efforts to achieve the maximum. We would definitely recommend this training to anyone who would want to learn Dutch.”

- Team Vodafone

“I had been searching for a good Dutch teacher from a long time, but after meeting Richa my search was over, she was extremely helpful and understanding while teaching Dutch, I understood the concepts and the structure of the language in a detailed manner, I hope to continue all my levels with Richa.”

- Divya Gera, Manager - Thomas Cook

“I would highly recommend Richa for all who are interested to learn Dutch. She has great command over the Dutch language and her pronunciation skills are as great as the native speakers. I can vouch for this, after spending two months in Amsterdam before joining the course. She has all the skills required for a great tutor - knowledge, patience, dedication and passion for the language. Richa has the best teaching method which has helped me to grasp the language at a faster pace in just 2 months. Learning any language requires a lot of effort from learner's end as well hence it is important that the learner also possess all the required skills just like the tutor. I am looking forward to my next level with her. Veel success, Richa!”

- Fiona Dmello, Arunika Fresco

“Richa has been a very friendly yet very professional teacher. The course content was really good and the short duration of lectures helped me grasp the concepts more easily without getting mentally exhausted. I look forward to learning A2 with her.”

- Mrunmayee Godbole, Dentist

“I had joined Richa's academy for the Dutch A1 and A2 level and can definitely say that its exactly what you would look for learning a new language. Richa is an excellent person and teacher. Her courses for Dutch are very well structured and it ensures a good learning path. Richa helps you a lot for correct pronunciations which is quite essential while learning a language. Each class is interactive with focus on all aspects - reading, writing, listening and speaking. The revisions + homework helps you to keep engaged. I would highly recommend Richa's class for anyone who wants to learn Dutch.”

- Indraneel Deshpande, Senior Consultant Technology -TIBCO

“I liked Richa's approach of having short but frequent classes during the week - 1 hour x 3 times/week . It worked better for me as compared to 2 hours session once per week. She was clear about what I would need to study and how much time I would need in order to reach A2 level Dutch proficiency in certain number of months. She was supportive and flexible when needed. The additional practice material she shared was helpful in exercising the language beyond the textbook. Lessons with her have helped me pass the A2 level exam (inburgeringsexamen) and I am continuing on to Level B1.”

- Gurjot Dhillon, Usability Designer - Philips

“Learning a new language was made so easy and fun by Richa. Though it was online but her teaching skills are excellent which would never make you realize it is online. I would highly recommend The Dutch Door® classes over any other Dutch language classes. My Dutch partner was shocked with my reading and understanding skills from the very first week. Richa is a very professional and super talented teacher loaded with patience to teach. Veel success!”

- Heena Chichkar, IT Engineer - Facebook

“With two months left before moving to the Netherlands to do my masters, I decided to look for a simple Dutch course to help with the basics. Richa's online service was the perfect way to get started on what sounds like a very difficult language. She was easy to coordinate with and very helpful. I would look forward to the classes and the homework as she made sessions fun and interactive. Now that I am in the Netherlands, I can see how useful the lessons have been. I find it much easier to understand the basics when buying groceries or getting around. Thank you, The Dutch Door!”

- Shambhavi Bhat, Erasmus University - Rotterdam

“Richa is an amazingly adaptable teacher, willing to do whatever it takes to best match one’s learning style. I was selected to attend a university in Europe, and had a mere three months to learn Dutch at the A2 level - a task that seemed almost insurmountable at the outset. Despite the limited time, and the relatively steep learning curve, Richa’s ‘ground-up’ teaching technique and focus on instruction through practice helped me through to the finish line. Thanks to her course, I’m now able to hold basic conversations with native Dutch speakers in my class, and can grasp the key messaging of the texts I read in the news. If (when I first started the course three months ago) someone had told me that this were possible in such a short span of time, I would have truly been astounded!”

- Nishant Store, INSEAD MBA Student

“Richa’s methodology of teaching Dutch basics is amazing. Within a few lessons, I was able to understand and quickly grasp the semantics of the language. Richa helped me understand various rules with ease. By the end of my A1 course, I was able to show off 🙂 my Dutch skills. It was fun to introduce myself in Dutch, kick off a basic casual conversation with native Dutch speakers. This was possible with the help and motivation of Richa. I surely recommend Richa to anyone who is interested in learning Dutch and looking to enhance their skill set for better future opportunities. Veel Succes!”

- Ricky Thakkar, Accenture

“For learning Dutch, I was trying earlier to go through online tutorials, but it is always better when it is instructor-led. Learning Dutch from Richa has been a pleasant experience.

“Thank you very much for the training of A1-level of Dutch. I can say the course content was very good, everything explained in detail and this will help people planning to take up the language exam.

“Guys Guys!!!! If you are looking for learning Dutch then this is the door you should knock at! Ms. Richa has immense knowledge about the subject and not only that , she makes the language so simple and learning so fun filled and interactive.

Definitely recommend and hats off to the institute for the splendid work and dedicated attitude.”

“Richa has organized the teaching content in a easy-to-digest fashion, this creates a comfortable atmosphere to learn a tedious task (picking up new language). The books and reading material prescribed in the course also help the learner to catch up quickly. The periodic revisions and assignments also accelerated the learning Dutch. Nevertheless, learning a new language needs tremendous effort from learner's end, Richa has the best technique to help the honest learner.”
