The Square Mile and BioPartner offer open enrolment Dutch courses for members of the scientific community and their partners, with the next round starting September 2020. Participants learn Dutch through Zoom and in person and meet peers from other high-tech enterprises, enhancing both their ability to settle in the region and network within interdependent organisations. What do our current participants say about the 2019-2020 courses?

“It is really nice to be in a small group like ours. We can ask many additional questions and feel involved.”

“Very enjoyable lessons in which I think we are making good progress. Ideal size group, and a good balance between course led book learning (and vocabulary) with conversational teacher led learning. The group has a good rapport between each other and with the teacher, and all seem to be doing well.”
