Our unique homework-free method provides you with all the tools you need to speak Dutch with confidence

Effective Dutch for Busy People

Are you wondering if Rubio Dutch is the right school for you?

Our method can help you achieve your goals, if one or more of these issues reflect your struggles with learning Dutch:

I am afraid to make mistakes

I find learning Dutch too frustrating

I think I am bad at languages

I don’t like (or even hate!) the language

I don’t feel connected to the Dutch society/culture/community

Everybody speaks English to me

I just have no discipline for learning

I have a hard time with the grammar or I lack vocab

I don’t feel like I’m ‘me’ in Dutch 

These hurdles are easy to improve or take out of the way, with the right tools and support. At Rubio Dutch we’d love to help you!

Rubio Dutch is more than just a place where you learn grammar and vocabulary. To become an effective learner, we help you to find the right goals, focus and mindset, we help you to create enough exposure and connection with native speakers, we help you to develop effective communication tools, and to create efficient learning habits based on your goals.

Our method is an unique combination of knowledge, tools and insights, meant to help you create a bridge between the safe space of the classroom and your daily life. Start speaking Dutch with confidence!

Corona-update Due to the current situation with COVID-19 spreading, we only offer online group courses.
Private classes are availabe both online and offline.

To make sure our courses are not only corona-proof, but also effective and fun, we made each group session short but intense, just 1h15min, with classes twice a week. If you’d like to join our courses or classes, but have questions about working online, please let us know! We are happy to help.

Online Group Courses

Learning a new language is never easy. But if you invest your energy and hard work in a smart way, you can make some significant progress in a short period of time. Learn like a child: by being courageous, applying and trying out new things, instead of the safety of endless exercises on paper.
Every trimester we start new group courses based on our unique Rubio Dutch method. Groups are small: no more than 8 people, working towards the same goals. Our teaching method and small group sizes allow for lots of individual attention, meaning there’s always an eye on your progress.

Group Courses we offer:

  • Effective Dutch Evening Courses from Beginners I (A1-) to Advanced II (C1+)
  • Conversation courses to grow confidence and fluency (Pick the dates & topics that suit you!)
  • Workshops: Confidence In Dutch
  • In-Company Programs
  • Workshops on different topics

Example of grammar instruction video

Gergana Petrova

External Relations Officer RIPE NCC

“Overcoming the fear of speaking Dutch and making mistakes was a big challenge for me. My lessons with Joska helped a lot. We discuss various subjects and role-play situations. Joska is very easy to talk to and corrects the most important mistakes without stopping me at every word. The two other aspects from the lessons that stand out for me are the summary grammar sheets and the variety of exercises that we do. I would highly recommend the lessons for people with little time who want to see results quickly.”

Florencia Grasseli

Music therapist

“I will totally recommend Joska. She is a great teacher! I was looking for a Dutch private teacher but didn’t have much luck. Normally private lessons are not well structured. From the beginning she focused on my needs and came up with a plan, dates and objectives for every lesson. Being a therapist and needing to speak Dutch for my work, her background in psychology was of great use in our lessons. Because she understands what I was talking about. If you want to learn Dutch in a methodological form, to learn what YOU want and what fits YOUR needs, I will totally recommend her. She is also a very warm person which adds to the whole picture.”
