Whether you devour scientific texts, indulge yourself in audio books, binge on documentaries, or simply love watching funny videos on YouTube: Klare Taal will provide you with the type of Dutch content that satisfies your own hunger for knowledge. We intertwine the necessary basics with hand-picked content, and grammar is portioned piecemeal so that it stands in proportion to the practical exercises we do.

Courage, curiosity, humor, and fun with improvising: these are indispensible when learning a language!

Students at Klare Taal benefit from classes held mostly in Dutch. Because Dutch, German and English have a lot in common, speakers of these languages will be able to follow and understand the teacher’s clear, calm words right away. With exposure to the Dutch language from the very beginning, it won’t be long before you’re able to express yourself in Dutch, too.

What exactly does the typically Dutch word ‘lekker’ mean – what is it used for apart from appointing food as tasty? What is the difference between ‘we’ and ‘wij’ – why do the Dutchies have two different words for certain personal pronouns, and when should each be used? Curiosity is our guide: questions that come up in class often are used as an incentive to research at home and then present the findings during the next class. As a researcher and presenter, you really do look at a certain question or topic and develop a more thorough understanding that sticks.

Want to start taking classes at Klare Taal? At our first meeting/trial class, we’ll talk about your learning goals, prior experience with language learning, and familiarity with Dutch.
