Social Dutch

The Dutch are very international and almost everyone speaks English. But wouldn’t it be nice to know the basics of this unique language and culture? So that you can order a drink in a bar, for example. Ask a question at the supermarket. Or get directions at a train station. You'll learn how to do this in 8 fun sessions of 2 hours. Once you have a HAN account you can sign up. You'll also hear more about the Social Dutch course at the HAN Intro.
