FAQ – Language

In our first article covering FAQs , we will share some of the most commonly searched for questions by students who want to learn a language. Some are specific to a particular language while others relate to general language learning. Our experience has also shown us that the following questions are also asked often:

Learning a language

How to learn a language?
How to learn a language fast?
Learn a language while you sleep.
Learn a language for free.

Learning is approached in many different ways. Traditional methods typically have students focus on memorization. While this might be okay for some educational topics, when learning a language, it leaves a lot behind. Social learning has been shown to be an effective approach to learning. Having implemented this into our approach, we are able to offer our students an engaging and comprehensive education that allows them to get the most out of their time and efforts.

Specific Language

Similarly to general learning, these are the questions we often hear from students who want to learn Dutch or English:

Learning Dutch

How to learn Dutch?
How to learn Dutch fast*
How to learn Dutch fast for free?* 

* Good luck with that haha. Learning a language is not fast, and unless you’ve been able to take advantage of our STAP courses, it’s not free either. 

Learning English

Learn English or Learn English online
How to learn English speaking
How to learn English grammar
How to learn English at home

While exact numbers are anyone’s guess, the United States Foreign Language Service estimates between 600-750 study hours are needed for the ‘easier’ languages. However, we do aim to help our students gain a lasting education, without wasting anyone’s time. Our crash courses, however, are scheduled in consultation with the student.

Making use of our proven social learning approach, we also offer group language courses. We understand that things move quickly, and that’s why our courses are finely tuned to achieve quick, yet effective and lasting results for business advantages. Our trainings work with the schedule of the group while offering focuses such as legal or business English.
