Kickstart your language learning!

The beginning of a New Year is the time to think about that age old question – What is my New Year’s resolution for 2020 going to be?


The trick to a successful resolution is setting yourself a realistic goal and taking the necessary steps to achieve it. Perhaps you’re new to the Netherlands, or maybe you’ve lived here for some time, but your Dutch is still limited to a few key words like 'lekker’ and ‘gezellig’. Or maybe you feel that it’s your English that is holding you back. Here at Kickstart School, improving your language skills is a resolution we can help you stick to. So why not make 2020 the year you take the plunge and sign up for a Dutch, English or Chinese course?


Improving your language skills has the potential to open a lot of doors, both personally and professionally. Language learning is about so much more than memorising vocabulary or wrapping your head around grammar, it also provides you with the opportunity to meet other like-minded expats and expand your social circle.


Deciding to learn Dutch is the first step to truly feeling at home here in The Netherlands and you’ll learn so much more than just the language. At Kickstart, we now offer seven progressive levels of Dutch courses in a range of formats to suit different schedules.


“I really found myself learning not only the language but the culture of the Netherlands. What I loved about the course the most was the type of students it attracts. I felt I was alongside motivated individuals from all different backgrounds and cultural identities. The learning was truly rich because we all weren't afraid to ask questions or make connections between what we were familiar with and the material. Really the best learning environment and I couldn't have seen myself with the same pleasant experience and results anywhere else.”

Of course, if Dutch is not for you, we also offer a wide range of General, Communication, Business, and Exam Preparation Courses in English. We cater to all levels from Elementary to Proficient, and with our flexible enrolment policy it’s easier than ever to join a course at any time and get started!


“I must say I spent a great time during my English course at Kickstart. Everything was amazing. According to the social media it’s the best school in The Hague. I totally agree with this opinion. Finally, I’d like to add I’m really interested in improving my English at Kickstart.” (Tomasz, General English) 


In case you would like to start learning Chinese (Mandarin) you can do this in one of our Communicating in Chinese courses. 


It is so different from all the languages I have ever learnt. It really helps if you have a good structure and a friendly teacher. I have experienced both during this course.
