UvA Talen is the independent language centre of the University of Amsterdam. They offer language courses in 12 languages and high-quality translation services.
UvA Talen’s range of group language courses is the largest in Amsterdam. They offer courses in 13 different languages, from elementary to advanced levels. Because the pace is fairly high and there is optimum interaction with the instructor and fellow students, you will reach your goals quickly. You can take a group course at their language school in the centre of Amsterdam, or improve your language skills online. Except for the fact that the online lessons take place in a virtual classroom, the courses use the same formula as the lessons on location.
Individual and in-company courses
UvA Talen specialises in personalised, tailor-made courses in Dutch, English and various other languages. You can either choose a one-on-one course at UvA Talen, online or at your office location in Amsterdam or an in-company group course for you and your colleagues. Courses can range from a general Dutch course for beginners to specialised courses focusing on corporate language use or fluency skills.
