Group courses

UvA Talen offers a wide range of group language courses with open enrolment for private individuals as well as individual corporate clients. Our permanent language course selection consists of eleven different languages, from the most elementary to the most advanced levels. Each year, over 2,000 students complete one or more of our courses and earn a certificate for an internationally-recognised language level.


The courses are geared towards motivated, often educated students. The lesson materials are dealt with in a fairly high tempo. We work with small groups in order to guarantee optimal interaction with the instructor and fellow students, enabling you to significantly improve your language proficiency level in a very short time.


Training courses in the centre of Amsterdam

All of our training courses are provided in or near the Roeterseilandcomplex of the University of Amsterdam. In our location at the Roetersstraat 25, we have access to a number of quality classroom facilities. We also provide a large number of language courses in the surrounding buildings of the University of Amsterdam.


Group courses are either held intensively, in the day-time, or in the evenings (start: three times a year). Our intensive daytime courses including the intensive language course Dutch for Beginners, our higher levels of Dutch as a Second Language (NT2)  and our English level courses are organised every four weeks.
