Study at Home
Between classes, you will work to develop your Dutch language skills with the help of your textbook as well as our smart e-learning system. In the e-learning, you can quickly learn new vocabulary, view instructional videos, do exercises, read documentation and other materials, and do hand-in assignments. All on your own computer, phone, or tablet. Additionally, your trainer and our other language professionals are on hand in e-learning, ready to help you with any questions you might have. You can also chat with your fellow students, and so learn from each other's insights. After the start of your Dutch for Expats course, you will continue to have access to e-learning for one year.

Smart E-learning: Faster Learning With MemoTraining
You can learn new words and phrases fast by frequently repeating what you learned in class. That's where our smart e-learning with MemoTrainer comes in. Using MemoTrainer, you can repeat the e-learning exercises that contain words and phrases you don't know by heart yet. Studies say our MemoTrainer can help you remember 70 to 95% of the words and phrases from your course, even up to a full year later. Without MemoTrainer, this can be as low as 5%. MemoTrainer is an app for your phone or tablet, but you can also use it in a web browser.
