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

Effective Dutch for Busy People

OUR WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY BEING UPDATED. Some functionalities might not work. Sorry for the inconvience! Please contact us at INFO@RUBIODUTCH.NL with any questions. THANKS!!


As you know, these are strange times, with the coronavirus spreading. From now on, all our classes will be taught online through the software of zoom.us, free for you to download. 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.

We work with zoom because it offers us:
– whiteboard, so that the teacher can write/explain stuff
– breakout sessions, so that you can switch from working all together to working in couples and invite the teacher when you have questions
– virtual ‘hand raising’ when you have a question
… and many more cool options to work as effective as in a regular classroom.

We are looking for motivated students for our online Dutch courses!

You have
– no time for traditional homework exercises;
– plenty of opportunities to speak Dutch in your daily life, or willing to create those;

You want to
– speak Dutch from week 1;
– learn those things that are relevant for you;
– speak Dutch with confidence;
– fully function in all your glory in a Dutch speaking environment;
– receive the practical tools to speak Dutch outside the classroom;
– understand the relationship between language and culture;

You need
– a patient and supportive teacher that guides you through the more difficult stages of language acquisition;
– Dutch for work, to improve your career opportunities, to help your kids with daycare/school/playdates/hobbies, or to feel part of society;
–  grammar to understand why things are the way they are

If 5 or more of these statements apply to you, then we have the right courses for you!

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

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.”
