Dutch course 30 hours – Learn to navigate daily life

Live sessions – Learn Dutch on the go

  • For individuals, groups, partners and families
  • Tailor-made programmes
  • 5 x 2-hour live sessions with a local Flowently tutor

Business English – Refine your knowledge at a professional level

English from different parts of the world can sound very different. Moreover, not everyone is equally well prepared to change working languages at a professional level. A Business English course helps expats in several ways. So they quickly feel confident in the workplace.

  • Boost communication skills
  • Learn useful jargon
  • Individual or group courses, live or online

Pronunciation – Take the edge off your accent

Pronunciation is essential for good communication. Mispronunciation can lead to many misunderstandings, slow down work processes and get in the way of a career. With our special method, we help you smooth out the sharp edges of your accent. Available for Dutch, English and other languages.

Other language courses – Improve German, French and Spanish, among others

Does your new employee need to learn German, French, Spanish, Arabic, Mandarin or another language? That’s no problem with one of our other language courses. We’d love to tell you more about it!

Cross Cultural Workshop – All about Dutch culture and customs

During this workshop, expats will learn more about Dutch history and geography in relation to current Dutch culture and customs. For example, how do you deal with time, space and hierarchy? Expats share their culture shock with each other and get useful tips for their life in the Netherlands.

Sessions for children – Learning a new language through play

Are children involved in the relocation process? Especially for toddlers, Flowently has developed a ‘Learning through play’ programme. We offer tailor-made services for every child, age and language.
