About 23 million people in the world speak Dutch. If you are working or studying in the Netherlands and if you have little or no prior knowledge of Dutch, but would like to master the fundamentals in order to survive life in the Low Countries, we have some good news! 

You can now join an online course to learn basic Dutch.  The course will run over three weeks, helping you to:
