Learn Dutch by taking one our Dutch courses online or in the UK! Dutch is a Germanic language spoken by more than 23 million native speakers in the Netherlands and Belgium, as well as in Suriname in South America. It is also widely understood in former colonies such as the Dutch Caribbean and Indonesia. In addition Afrikaans which is spoken by millions in South Africa and Namibia, shares many of the same tonal intonations and grammatical structures as Dutch and they are mutually intelligible.
Dutch is the 7th most-spoken language in Europe and the 30th most-spoken language of the 1000s of languages spoken in the world. Even more importantly, the Netherlands and Belgium belong to the largest trading partners of both the UK and the US, making Dutch an extremely important language in import/export. With the majority of Dutch speakers being fluent in English there may seem little reason to learn Dutch but remember that even though you may “buy in your own language” you will find it’s much easier to “sell in the foreign language.”
There are many courses and learning options available from part-time courses to online Dutch courses to start learning Dutch. Before studying Dutch it’s important to assess which type of language course or combination of courses is the most appropriate for you. So find out what are the best ways to start learning Dutch.
