Powered byKoentact

Found yourself moving to the beautiful country of the Netherlands? Congratulations! We know the first few days can be hectic, especially if you don’t know a word of Dutch.

But don’t worry, Koentact is having an Open Day, and they’ll get you from “Sorry, I don’t speak Dutch” to breaking the ice with sentences like “Ik ben [naam]. Hoe gaat het met je?” (I am [name]. How are you?) in no time. 🍺

Instead of boring textbooks and repetitive exercises, Koentact gets you out and about to practice Dutch with Amsterdam’s locals and experience the culture firsthand. 

What is Koentact all about?

Koentact is an Amsterdam-based Dutch language school with a fun and interactive approach to teaching Dutch. 

The school will host an Open Day on September 13 for everyone who’s interested in learning how to perfect that guttural ‘g’ and more. 

During the Open Day, you’ll be able to: 

  • Take a beginner-level trial lesson
  • Have your language level assessed by professional
  • Meet the team
  • Learn all about Koentact 
  • Win a free course worth €445 

Break the ice

Before you know it, this Open Day will inspire you to break the ice in Dutch with hits like these: 

  • Hoi, mijn naam is [naam] en ik hou van fietsen!: Hi, my name is [name], and I love cycling (Even if you don’t love cycling, you will come to enjoy it). 
  • Ik woon in Nederland maar ik kom uit [land]: I live in the Netherlands, but I come from [country] (You might have to use this one often).
  • Mijn hobbies zijn hockey spelen en borrelen: My hobbies are playing hockey and having a drink (Trust us, this will make you fit with the Dutch in no time). 

If that’s not enough to entice you, it’s worth noting that Koentact has a teaching location in the awe-inspiring city centre of Amsterdam. You can combine your sightseeing and study in one day!
