The basis of the online Dutch lessons of Dutch for Kids lies in 2013 at a sports camp in The Hague. The children chose to go surfing, play tennis or multi-sports. In addition, they received Dutch lessons for 1 hour a day from one of our certified teachers.
We saw the children grow in those weeks, so cool! Full of self-confidence, they started having conversations in Dutch with their peers.
After these weeks, children chose to continue their lessons online with us. They had already seen their teacher at the sports camp, which of course made it extra fun! Also during the summer holidays we give online Dutch lessons to children from all over the world. So when the camp was over, we saw the children online for their Dutch lessons the following week.

Of course we all thought that was a shame because this was the place where it all started for us and where the children enjoyed participating in sports in combination with Dutch lessons every year.
We now give weekly online Dutch lessons to more than 250 children from all over the world.

We wish you all a sporty summer holiday!
