‘Competition with English and Dutch speaking colleagues is increasing in the search for new jobs’.

These are just two quotes from research conducted recently into international careers in the Netherlands. Some 29% of respondents have considered language courses as a way to enhance their careers.

New at the BSN Language Centre!

In January 2014, a new Online Dutch Beginners Course will be launched. This enables students to conveniently plan their own place and time to study and arrange for feedback on their learning progress by the teacher once or twice per week.

Please check out our website early January for more details on this course.

In February 2014, The Language Centre will be offering the Online CELTA course for the first time.

The BSN Language Centre is the only certified language institute in The Netherlands to do so. This course will still require participants to attend the centre once per week to complete the practical element, but the theory can be completed at home, online, at a time that suits the trainee.

If you are looking into making English teaching your next career step, this course is for you!

The focus of the Dutch Conversation classes is on improving your conversation skills, enabling students to practice and socialize with each other, as well as learning about the Dutch culture. It is a great way to make new friends!
