Sessions, topics, packages, programs

You can book all types of sessions, topics and languages from the same package. Each session can be tailored to your language needs.
Does Flowently offer intensive courses?
Contact us, and we can advise you and arrange a course, according to your wishes.
Can I have my sessions at home?
By exception we can teach at the students home. We do recommend our live sessions, because meeting up with your tutor in town where you are surrounded by your new language, will certainly inspire you. For children sessions a tutor will come to your home.
Does Flowently offer group sessions?
If you want to learn a language with a group of friends or colleagues together, we are happy to arrange that and provide a tutor. Flowently does not form groups of students herself.
Where can I find the expiry date of my package?
All packages are valid for one year. Check your Flowently account for appointments, credits and the expiry date. NB, it is not Flowently’s responsibility to check the expiry date of your package.
How does Flowently guard quality of the sessions?
We guard quality of our sessions by sending the student the request for feedback by email, after each session. In case there is a problem, Flowently will contact the student and tutor and take care of a solution. Are you happy with your sessions and teacher? Please send a review as this will be posted on your tutor’s profile.
What is the program for children?
Children sessions can take place at your home or online. The program will be tailored to your child’s needs, if possible in cooperation with the school she or he attends. The tutor will connect to your child’s interests and use that as motivation for teaching. Learning by playing, interactive games, visit a playground, library, shop or museum, interact with other kids with the guidance of the tutor, in combination with modern study methods. Children sessions are available for all ages.
Can Flowently help me prepare for the civic and state exams?
Flowently tutors can help you prepare for your civic integration exam and the NT2 Exams level I and II. We teach from level A0 to C2.
What is the value of the Flowently certificate?
Flowently students can take a test and receive a Flowently certificate. Flowently certificates can only confirm a certain language level or language skills.
Can I learn other languages?
Select the language you want to learn. Couldn’t find the language you want to learn? Please contact us and we will find you a tutor. You can use your package for any language, for which we have tutors available.
What is a bridge language?
You can select a tutor on bridge language, e.g. you are from Brazil, then you can learn Dutch with a tutor who speaks Portuguese. That will make it easier to learn Dutch, instead of having English as bridge language.
What study books does Flowently recommend?
Study books we recommend are modern, and most have a site for self-study. Study books are not included in the fee for the sessions. You can order your books here.
Flowently is offering free E-books for Dutch, English and Papiamentu.
We advise all our students to buy a Taaltempo book in the language they are studying, if available. This method will really help improve pronunciation, speaking skills and speed up the reaction-time.
