GROUP DUTCH CLASSES

Below you will find our Dutch classes offered this session. We have online group Dutch classes and will soon offer in person group classes at our Carmel, Indiana location. Our classrooms are only 10 minutes from Fishers, Westfield and Northern Indianapolis. If you don't see the class that you are looking for, or you are interested in private instruction, please call us at 844-503-1237.

*First-time students will also have a one-time $25 Registration Fee, included in the price below.  This $25 fee helps offset the administrative cost of setting up new students in our school management system and helps keep their course tuition costs lower. After enrollment, you will receive communication within 2 weeks with your class start date or, if class is not confirmed, a delay notification.

STEP 1

STEP 2   (same day or next business day)

Please follow this link to read and sign the student agreement for group classes and complete your enrollment.

STEP 3  (as soon as class is confirmed)

We use WhatsApp to connect our teachers and students so they can share homework, ask questions & make any necessary schedule changes (due to holidays etc).  This group is just for you, your classmates and your teacher, but our admin team is there to help you too.

If you do not already have WhatsApp, please download the app to your phone here: whatsapp.com/download.

Once your Dutch group class is confirmed and one of our talented Dutch teachers is assigned to your group, we will send an email to all students with details of the class' scheduled days and times to meet as well as the textbook and cost right away.

STEP 4  (1-2 weeks before start of class)

STEP 5  (around one week)

Before your first class meets, you'll receive a Zoom link for your online class (or arrive at our Indianapolis classroom for in-person). In class you'll have many opportunities to make sentences, practice conversations, and start improving your Dutch fluency. After class, let your instructor know how much fun you had!

Why learn Dutch?

 

A Dutch class at Indy Language Center can help you travel more places than you might think! Dutch (nederlands) is spoken not only in the Netherlands, but also in Belgium, Suriname, and the Dutch Antilles (Caribbean). Over 23 million people worldwide speak Dutch, including former colonies South Africa and Indonesia. And according to the 2010 census approx. 136,000 people in the US still speak Dutch!

What is the difference between Dutch and Afrikaans?

Dutch spoken by the 17th and 18th century settlers evolved into Afrikaans, one of the official languages of South Africa. With an estimated 90 to 95 percent Dutch origin in Afrikaans vocabulary, a Dutch speaker and Afrikaans speaker can communicate with each other. The main difference between the two languages is that Afrikaans does not have grammatical gender and the grammar is less complex.

 

Fun Facts about Dutch

  • Dutch is a Germanic language, so it shares a lot of similarities with German and English. If you already speak one of these languages, it is easier for you to learn Dutch from one of our Dutch courses.

  • With 35 letters “meervoudigepersoonlijkheidsstoornis” (multiple personality disorder) is the longest word in the Dutch dictionary - talk about compounding nouns!

  • Probably the most important Dutch word you need to know is “gezellig”.  Often equated to cozy, it is a concept with more depth than its English counterpart, associated with the comfort of time spent with loved ones, seeing a friend after a long separation or simply togetherness.

Frequently Asked Questions

WHAT HAPPENS IF THE GROUP CLASS I SIGNED UP FOR DOESN’T GET ENOUGH STUDENTS?
 

We do our best to fill new language classes each semester, but sometimes a class doesn’t fill before it’s start date. We may extend the start date and begin the class a few weeks later in the semester if possible. If a group class is unable to start, students have three options.
Option 1: The class will be delayed until the next semester, and the student receives a $50 class deferral credit.
Option 2: The student opts to receive private or semi-private language instruction at their preferred schedule and pays the difference in tuition.
Option 3: The student opts to withdraw their enrollment for the class and receives a full refund of the tuition paid.

CAN YOU OFFER HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT?
 

Please contact your school directly to make sure they allow credit for independent projects, then contact us. We have developed curriculum especially for high school and college students, but Indy Language Center is not an accredited credit-granting institution. We can work with the language department of your student’s school to have our class curriculum approved for the student’s school. If needed, we can make adjustments to meet the school’s requirements for granting credit. Once your student's school approves a proposal to their requirements for the language program, we can ensure your student will produce a portfolio, have recorded grades, and/or take exams that will qualify him/her for the credits awarded by their school.
